Federal and State False Claims Acts have been A powerful weapon in combating fraud against the government. Since 1986, more than $27 billion has been recovered by federal and state governments across the United States as a result of false claims lawsuits.
Federal and State False Claims Acts prohibit any individual or business from submitting, or causing someone else to submit, to the government a false or fraudulent claim for payment. These false claims acts apply to all of the goods and services state and federal governments contract for, like:
Health Care (Medicare and Medicaid) Fraud
Defense Contracting Fraud
Energy (Oil and Gas) Contracting Fraud
Iraq Reconstruction Fraud
Disaster Relief Fraud
Construction and Procurement Fraud
Financial Industry Fraud
