Results That Make A Difference

What is the False Claims Act?

The False Claims Act is the government’s most important tool to uncover and punish fraud against the United States. The key enforcement mechanism in the False Claims Act is its reliance upon “insiders” or whistleblowers to provide credible information documenting fraud against the U.S. government. These whistleblowers assist the government in protecting the public trust and holding accountable those who would defraud the government.

Anyone who has information about fraud against the government is a potential relator. Qui tam relators include employees, patients, vendors, bookkeepers, medical care providers, accountants, auditors, independent contractors, analysts and service providers — if you are aware of fraud against the government at either the federal or state level, you may be able to start a False Claims Act case.
