Health care fraud may involve a wide range of behaviors, such as:

- Manipulating statistics to increase payments
- Failure to report over-payments
- Inappropriate coding

Qui tam law allows an individual to sue in the name of the federal government for violations of federal law, such as misuse of federal funding. The individual who brings the lawsuit can then share in the financial recovery if the government is awarded damages.
If you are successful in your lawsuit, you may be entitled to up to 30 percent of the monetary award. Our qui tam attorneys are knowledgeable in these cases and will help to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
