Violations of the

False Claim Act

Bracker & Marcus LLC litigates cases violating the False Claim Act in the healthcare, government contracting, and financial industries, just to name a few. The following are common FCA violations in each of these industries.

Healthcare Fraud

● Violating the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) – This statute ensures that patients receive care or products based on medical judgment, not because someone is getting a kickback. For example, a doctor would be violating the AKS if they prescribe a new medication in exchange for money or an expensive vacation.

● Upcoding – This is one of the most common violations of the False Claim Act in the healthcare industry. Upcoding occurs when a medical provider uses incorrect billing codes that result in higher reimbursement. For example, a surgeon who bills for a simple procedure as if it were a complex procedure would be committing upcoding.

● Unbundling – Government health care programs typically pay one amount for related services. Dishonest health care providers sometimes bill these items separately in order to charge more money.

Government Contractor Fraud

● Product Substitution – a contractor who promises one type of good to the government but delivers another, inferior product, and then bills for the expensive version, commits fraud against the government.

● Falsifying Progress Reports – This type of government fraud occurs when a contractor falsifies reports on government contracts to quickly get progress-based payments instead of what has been earned.

● Lying to Participate in Special “Set Aside” Programs – the government chooses to set aside a percentage of work for companies owned by minorities, by women, or who are in other less-represented groups to encourage those businesses. A contractor commits fraud if they claim to belong to one of these groups when they do not.

Financial Fraud

● Trade practice violations – This type of fraud can be litigated under the FCA and includes several different scams, including unauthorized swap transactions (swap scams).

● Tax fraud – Tax fraud is criminalized as “false or fraudulent returns” under Title 26, United States Code Section 7206(1). This is a serious crime that carries stiff penalties, including a minimum three-year prison sentence.

● Financial statement fraud – An individual or company commits financial statement fraud (improper revenue recognition) when they falsify balance sheets, income, and cash flow statements to create the appearance of a stronger company than it actually is. A common reason for this is personal gain of funds.
