Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Rewards and Medicaid Fraud Whistleblower Rewards Are Still The Most Efficient Method To Expose Health Care Fraud by Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Reward Lawyer and Medicaid Whistleblower Reward Lawyer Jason S. Coomer


Health Care Fraud is one of the fastest growing crimes.  It is estimated that health care fraud in the United States has increased to over two hundred billion dollars ($200,000,000,000.00) each year and is continuing to increase each year. Health Care Fraud includes Medicare billing scams and Medicaid billing scams.  Examples of these types of health care fraud include upcoding, double billing, billing for unnecessary services, billing for services not needed, and billing for services not provided. To combat Medicare fraud scams and Medicaid fraud scams, the United States government has amended the Federal False Claims Act to encourage medical professionals to step up and blow the whistle on Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud. Medicare Fraud Whistleblowers and Medicaid Fraud Whistleblowers that are the original source of specialized knowledge of large health care fraud scam can make substantial recoveries if they are the first to file a successful qui tam claim under the Federal False Claims Act.

Health Care Whistleblower Reward Lawsuits are the most effective method for identifying and preventing large scale health care fraud against the government. As such, the United States and several states have enacted health care whistleblower reward laws that harness the power of economic incentives by offering large monetary rewards to whistleblowers that properly report significant fraud.

The Federal Government Understands the Value of Health Care Whistleblower Reward Laws And Is Expanding the Department of Justice Budget to Detect Health Care Fraud

The Department of Justice and both parties in Washington understand that Medicare Fraud and Medicaid Fraud are costing taxpayers over $200,000,000,000.00 each year.  Therefore, increased investments of money into the Department of Justice to help fight health care fraud are needed and beneficial for taxpayers.

"In executing the President’s Executive Order on a 'Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch,' the Department of Justice is dedicated to good stewardship of taxpayer dollars. As an example, the Department’s FY 2018 request dedicates $274.7 million, an increase of $24.9 million, to support our work against civil and criminal health care fraud. The most recent projections show that the three-year average return on investment on health care fraud funding for the Department and HHS is $5 to every $1 invested. This is the type of stewardship that protects the vulnerable and provides significant returns to the American people."

False Claim Act Recoveries: The United States Has Recovered More Than $50 Billion Through the Federal False Claims Act By False Claims Act Whistleblower Reward Lawyer

False Claims Act Recoveries: The United States Has Recovered More Than $50 Billion Through the Federal False Claims Act By False Claims Act Whistleblower Reward Lawyer

Since 1986, the Civil Division of the Department of Justice, working with U.S. Attorneys across the country, has returned tens of billions of dollars to the federal Treasury through civil and criminal judgments and resolutions in affirmative cases. This amount includes more than $53.6 billion recovered by the Division and the U.S. Attorneys under the False Claims Act. Last year alone, the government recovered more than $4.7 billion under the Act—the seventh straight year that the Department has recovered more than $3 billion of taxpayer funds. Similarly, in each of the last seven fiscal years, the government’s health care fraud recoveries have equaled or exceeded $2 billion. In addition, in FY 2016, the government recovered more than $6.6 billion from banks and other financial institutions making false statements and claims.

Professionals, who are aware of significant fraud schemes against the government, can earn large financial rewards and help the United States by properly exposing this fraud.  For more information on the Federal False Claims Act and Whistleblower Reward Laws, please go to the following web pages: The Federal False Claims Act and Whistleblower Reward Laws

The False Claims Act Whistleblower Reward Law and Other Whistleblower Reward Laws

Under Federal law, whistleblower recoveries can come through four different whistleblower recovery laws.  The Federal False Claims Act is the oldest of the laws and under this law the Federal Government has brought in over $50 Billion.  Under this law successful whistleblowers have been awarded over $5 Billion and these whistleblower rewards are expected to continue to expand as many states are enacting their own false claims act laws.  The Federal False Claims Act was recently amended by the Federal Enforcement and Recovery Act (FERA) including expanding the reach of the Federal False Claims Act to include subcontractors working under a government contractor and other parties working with government contractors.  The Federal False Claims Act was also expanded protection for employee whistleblowers.   States have also been encouraged through economic incentives to enact their own Medicaid False Claims Act whistleblower recovery laws.  These state whistleblower recovery laws must be at least as strong as the Federal False Claims Act whistleblower reward laws for the state to receive the increased economic benefits from the Federal Medicaid Fraud Recovery Program.

With the ever increasing cost of medical care and government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid as well as an increased military budget, it is now more important than ever to crack down on fraud against the United States that costs us over $100 Billion a year.
