What is Needed to File a Whistleblower Case/Qui Tam Case?

Many people wonder whether they have a case that amounts to a whistleblower case or whether they can bring a whistleblower lawsuit. So what is a whistleblower? The term “whistleblower” refers to any person or persons who reveals illegal, unethical or fraudulent behavior or actions by an individual or organization. The term “qui tam” is used in whistleblower cases that involve fraud against the government. The term qui tam literally means “who sues on behalf of the King as well as for himself.”

Whistleblower/Qui Tam Cases are Based on Fraud

Most whistleblower/qui tam cases are filed under state and federal False Claims Act, the IRS Fraud Program or the SEC/CFTC program. Under these laws, someone who blows the whistle against a person or entity that is defrauding the federal government, may receive a portion of any damages recovered on behalf of the government, and is protected against any retaliation. At Munley Law, we file lawsuits on behalf of our whistleblower/qui tam clients using these laws to help recover against the fraud and dishonesty of others.

As a general rule, rewards for whistleblowers are from 15 to 25 percent of any money that is recovered by the government.

Whistleblower/qui tam lawsuits are typically filed against healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers, and these lawsuits can also be brought for tax fraud, securities and commodities fraud, and defense contractor fraud. The most common whistleblower/qui tam cases are against healthcare providers and involve Medicaid and Medicare fraud.

Some common types of fraud in healthcare include:

  • When a healthcare provider bills the government for services that it did not provide
  • When the government is billed for services that are not necessary to the patient
  • When one party is receiving kickbacks in exchange for a business referral or something else of value
  • When doctors make referrals to other medical facilities they own or have an ownership interest in, and they do not disclose this information
  • When a doctor or healthcare facility codes a bill that requires a higher amount than is necessary, known as “up-coding”
  • Falsely certifying healthcare documents
  • Inflating healthcare costs

Some examples of pharmaceutical company whistleblower/qui tam cases include:

  • Marketing a drug for uses that are not approved by the FDA, also know as “off label”
  • Pricing Fraud

I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him. Trucking Accident Client
