This Third Edition of False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry has been prepared in response to False Claims Act (FCA) amendments, the surge of false claims litigation and recoveries, and the rapidly developing case law. It is intended to help health care lawyers, accountants, executives, and other professionals assess a company’s potential exposure to false claims liability and reform company practices to reduce the risk of liability by providing a comprehensive analysis of the FCA and its interpretation. This new edition analyzes legislative changes to:

  • The FCA’s reverse false claims provision; 
  • The FCA’s whistleblower retaliation provision; and
  • The FCA’s public disclosure bar.

In the wake of these changes, courts across the country, including the United States Supreme Court, have issued significant decisions that impact the operation of health care businesses. This book analyzes those decisions, addressing:

  • 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;  
  • And more.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
