Investigations / False Claims Act Investigation
Have you witnessed your employer submit fraudulent invoices to the government for payment in connection with Medicare or Medicaid, a military contract, or another type of government program or contract, or have you witnessed a company commit securities or tax fraud? Whistleblowers who possess non-public information concerning such misconduct can earn large cash rewards for being the first to report it to the government in a False Claims Act lawsuit, also known as a “qui tam” or “whistleblower” lawsuit.
Thanks to the employees and other professionals who have blown the whistle on Medicare and Medicaid fraud, tax fraud, government contract abuses, physician/hospital kickbacks, corporate securities fraud, and other such misconduct, committed by companies and businesses of all sizes, the United States government has recovered billions of dollars in misappropriated assets that would otherwise have been beyond reach.
And the pharmacists, billing professionals, healthcare employees, financial consultants and other insiders who have participated in False Claims Act lawsuits have earned more than $1 billion in whistleblower awards for providing the critical information and assistance that contributed to these recoveries.
Whistleblowers are powerful tools for the United States government in investigating and putting a stop to these kinds of frauds and recovering some of its losses. In exchange, whistleblowers are typically rewarded with 15 to 30 percent of the total amount of any fraudulently obtained assets recovered as a result of their lawsuit.
Hedin Hall is actively investigating a wide range of business practices, across various industries, that may be leading to the commission of fraud against the United States government. We are interested in speaking with people who have witnessed or who possess first-hand knowledge of fraud committed against the United States government.
