Whistleblower/Qui Tam lawsuits are a type of civil lawsuit that has become a powerful way for whistleblowers to help stop many kinds of fraud, including: Medicare and Medicaid fraud, contractor fraud, and numerous other types of frauds that impact the taxpayers and the government financially. Whistleblower lawsuits allow the forthcoming individual (the whistleblowers) to get rewarded for the professional and personal risks they take to expose and stop fraud against the government. The average whistleblower reward exceeds $1,000,000. In addition, there are strong laws that protect whistleblowers.
Under the False Claims Act, a private citizen may sue an individual or a business that is defrauding the government and recover funds on behalf of the government. The whistleblower lawsuit is filed “under seal,” meaning that it is kept secret from everyone but the government to give the Justice Department time to investigate the allegations. Even the person or entity being accused of fraud is not told about the case.
CATEGORIES OF WHISTLEBLOWER CASES:
· Healthcare Fraud
· Contractor Fraud
· Defense Contractor Fraud
· Violation of GSA Contracts
· Environmental Fraud
· Deceptive billing and invoicing practices
· Falsifying claims processing information required by law
· Program and grant fraud
· Performing unnecessary services

STEPS TO TAKE:
Once a person has evidence of fraud against the government and decides to blow the whistle, that person needs to find a lawyer to represent him/her and bring any witnesses or documentation that supports their allegations to the attorney for review.
