In addition to the federal False Claims Act, which targets fraud against the U.S. government, some states have their own False Claims Act, which allows citizens to report fraud, waste or abuse affecting state government. Not all states have a False Claims Act, and not all State FCAs encompass all types of fraud. For example, some state FCAs are only used to identify and prosecute Medicaid fraud. Whistleblowers whose state does not have a FCA or whose state FCA doesn’t encompass other types of fraud, should talk with a lawyer about their options for filing as a relator under the qui tam provisions of the federal False Claims Act.
Find out if your state has a FCA and what it covers by visiting our Whistleblower Claims website.
