In this Fourth Edition of False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry, author Robert S. Salcido incorporates his analysis of recent applications of the law by federal district courts, circuit courts of appeal, the United States Supreme Court, and relevant federal agencies through January 21, 2022. Areas of evolving False Claims Act (FCA) interpretation include:

  • What link must exist where an alleged FCA violation is based on an alleged violation of the Anti-Kickback Statute
  • The necessity that relators alleging a corporate-wide scheme furnish corporate-wide proof
  • Application of the FCA's statute of limitations tolling provision to relators
  • Whether claims are false when alleged facts are consistent with both misconduct and an obvious alternative explanation in accordance with the law
  • Whether a false implied representation must be linked to specific codes and factual representations on the claim form
  • Whether a case should be dismissed if a plaintiff relies on subregulatory guidance to establish falsity
  • How courts have applied a “holistic” test to determine whether a false representation is material to the government's determination to pay
  • Whether relators can pursue additional claims against the defendant once the government intervenes
  • What the government must show to dismiss qui tam actions over a relator's objection
  • Updates to the Health Care Fraud Self-Disclosure Protocol
  • And more

This comprehensive reference is intended to assist health care lawyers, accountants, executives, and other professionals assess a health care company's potential exposure to liability, evaluate the exposure of companies that may be acquired, and reform company practices to reduce the risk of potential FCA liability.
