5 Warning Signs of Government Fraud Resulting in False Claims Act Violations

1. Doctors signing prescription pads for others to fill in with prescriptions for controlled substances. This is a clear sign for fraud against the government and could be a false claims act claim.

2. Prescriptions that include less than the required information.

3. Prescriptions for Schedule II drugs being written to include refills or Schedule III-V prescriptions being written to include more than 5 refills or refills for more than 6 months.

4. A doctor prescribing a drug that is also a controlled substance for diseases and illnesses that do not warrant such drugs.

5. A doctor prescribing a drug that is also a controlled substance to a very large majority of their patients. This could be a violation of government fraud and a potential false claims case to take action on.
