Description

Stemming back to 1863, the False Claims Act, which is often referred the “Lincoln Law”, remains the federal government’s number one fraud fighting tool for returning monies to the federal fisc. The 1986 Amendments, as well as the various amendments under the Fraud Enforcement and Reduction Act (FERA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), have given the government and relators’ counsel additional tools and avenues to pursue in relation to False Claims Act cases.

Combatting healthcare fraud has been and remains a top priority for the U.S. Department of Justice – Civil Frauds Division, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Task Force (HEAT) and HHS Office of the Inspector General. Common areas of enforcement include Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS), Stark Law, factually false claims where no goods or services were provided but claims were submitted to government programs for payment. Additionally, new areas of interest include cybersecurity, COVID-19 fraud, and Controlled Substance Act violations. In 2023, two opinions were issued by the United States Supreme Court addressing two areas of the False Claims Act.

Fortunately, compliance departments and defense counsel have a roadmap for mitigating liability in certain circumstances – both for corporate entities and for individuals.
