About This Course
A qui tam action, or whistleblower, who reports on a healthcare company/individual who commits fraud, waste or abuse against the government may create a financial windfall to those who have such information.
This financial relief falls under the federal and state False Claims Act (FCA). In California there is also a statue which allows relief when fraud, waste or abuse are committed against California private insurance companies. This CLE course will offer a comprehensive overview of whistleblower laws, and present recent trends in litigation including data mining relators.
The course will also discuss the potential to use the FCA as a tool to fight fraud related to COVID-19 and the government’s response to such fraud.
