The new Fifth Edition of False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry is designed to help you assess potential False Claims Act (FCA) exposure and reform company practices. Robert S. Salcido’s sharp and well-referenced analysis of evolving false claims risks and requirements explains a changing calculus in the wake of SuperValu, Polansky, and other recent interpretations by courts and enforcers.

Robert S. Salcido incorporates his insightful analysis of recent applications of the law by federal district courts, circuit courts of appeal, the Supreme Court, and relevant federal agencies. From knowledge to materiality to causation, every aspect of a potential false claim allegation is addressed, with citation to authority out of every federal district.

Areas of evolving interpretation examined in this edition include:

  • Defenses that the defendant’s claim is not "false"
  • Defenses that the defendant did not "cause" the submission of a false claim
  • Defenses that the defendant did not "know" that the claim or statement is false
  • Defenses that the defendant’s false claims or statements are not “material”
  • The status of actions where the relator repeats public information
  • The circumstances under which relators may recover attorneys' fees
  • The prospects for future challenges to the qui tam provisions' constitutionality
  • And more
