Do You Have A Qui Tam Claim?
If companies or corporations commit fraud against our government, they are taking money from honest U.S. taxpayers. Qui tam is one of the weapons our justice system provides as a way to fight fraudulent behavior.
What is qui tam? A qui tam action involves a private party, commonly referred to as a whistleblower, who declares fraud on behalf of the government. The act protects and rewards whistleblowers for their role in exposing fraud and they can receive between 10 and 30 percent of the recovery, if the case is successful.
Reporting fraud takes courage, and without whistleblowers, the majority of fraud against the government would not be revealed. The qui tam act protects whistleblowers from discrimination and retaliation and enforces strict penalties, including double pay with interest.

Types Of Fraud
Fraud can occur in any industry. The health care industry and others where multiple organizations are involved are common victims of fraud in the United States. Common types of fraud include:
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Kickbacks from pharmaceutical, medical device and medical equipment manufacturers
- Upcoding and unbundling billing codes
- Home health care fraud
- Defense contractor fraud
- Breach of contract issues
These are serious issues that can result in substantial losses for the government. Individuals who have witnessed fraud and other illegal actions by companies or corporations deserve our respect.
