Whistleblower Rights & Qui Tam Claims
A whistleblower or “qui tam” action is a civil action filed by a private citizen on behalf of the federal government reporting false claims submitted to the government for payment. Examples include billing the government for duplicative or unnecessary services or over-billing the government for services.

Qui tam actions
Whistleblower and qui tam actions are essential to holding contractors accountable for charges submitted to the government for payment. It is also essential in holding medical providers accountable for the services they provide to patients and charges submitted to Medicare and Medicaid.
If you have any knowledge about fraudulent claims being submitted to the federal government, you may be entitled to recover at least fifteen percent of the total amount recovered by the government.
