A whistleblower or qui tam lawsuit can provide financial rewards to individuals who provide information regarding a company or individual that has defrauded the government. The primary statutes under which this relief may be sought are the federal and state False Claims Acts (“FCAs”), which are not specific to any particular type of fraud. The fraud can be, and often is, related to home health care services and long term healthcare provided to Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries. Whistleblowers are provided with a financial reward if the lawsuit is successful. The reward to the whistleblower is normally between 15% and 25% of the amount recovered.
