Welcome to FCA Insider, your source for False Claims Act insights and information on qui tam litigation and rules, laws, guidance and DOJ settlements that influence the healthcare fraud and abuse landscapes.
At its inception, the FCA was designed to combat fraud against the government, particularly in connection with military contractors. At present, the majority of federal qui tam actions relate to alleged healthcare, procurement and mortgage fraud — all fields in which McGuireWoods has significant litigation experience.
We have defended qui tam actions across industries, including government contractors, defense contractors, oil and gas companies, transportation companies, hospitals, healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies and financial services companies.
We also advise clients on FCA pitfalls and compliance requirements related to transactions they are considering and help them devise policies and practices that comply with FCA requirements.
As healthcare has become increasingly costly and fastidious, we have seen an influx of qui tam complaints against medical providers and others in healthcare industries. We represent healthcare institutions, providers and payors on all areas of FCA and qui tam defense.
