How to Report Medicaid and Medicare Fraud
When clients retain Berger & Montague when reporting a
Medicaid or Medicare fraud claim, the firm typically utilizes the
Act (FCA) to recover the fraudulently obtained funds.
Under the FCA, the whistleblower can receive 15% - 30% of the funds
recovered as a reward for uncovering the fraud.
Hundreds of billions of dollars are paid by the government each
year for Medicaid and Medicare services, so the potential for fraud
against the government is vast, particularly since the government
relies on the "honor system" to obey the law. Sadly, we know
individuals and companies routinely break the law and submit
fraudulent or false charges to the government. Berger &
Montague's Whistleblower Practice can help unravel healthcare fraud
against the government. We
understand each step in the whistleblower process, and we are
sensitive to our client's needs when deciding how to best collect
evidence and present their claims. For a free and
