Overview

In 2018, the government recovered over $2.8 billion through the False Claims Act.  Many in health care are aware of the False Claims Act and its ramifications in the healthcare industry, but what a lot of people are unaware of is the so-called Reverse False Claims Act and the new uptick in enforcement on healthcare providers under this provision.

The government is using this new aspect of the False Claims Act to increase their enforcement and most healthcare providers are unaware of this new approach.  Adapting to the requirements requires understanding of this law and how it applies to health care providers and their compliance programs.
