False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry is a one-stop source for legislative and case law developments covering the gamut of potential false claims litigation, across all jurisdictions. This publication provides analysis of key arguments, including:

  • Defenses that the defendant's claim is not "false"
  • Defenses that the defendant did not "know" that the claim or statement is "false"
  • Defenses that the defendant's knowingly false claims or statements are not "material" to the government's determination to pay
  • The status of actions where the relator's action repeats public information

The 2020 Supplement to the Third Edition has been prepared in response to the rapidly developing case law. It 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. The 2020 Supplement includes coverage of:

  • The relator's ability to pursue new claims and defendants after government intervention when the government declines to pursue the relator's additional claims
  • Plaintiff's ability to predicate an FCA action upon subregulatory guidance in light of supervening Supreme Court precedent
  • The government's increasing propensity to seek dismissal of meritless qui tam actions
