I am an auditor in Health care- Medicare rules are different than false claims acts. If the company self reported which judging the dollar amount is the case than it usually twice the lost otherwise there are hefty fines per claim.


Hi Eugene,

The False Claims Act is pretty broad: I've seen some Medicare fraud cases involve the FCA or some FCA cases involve Medicare Fraud.

That said, I think YOU'RE RIGHT about this particular case. I went back to the DoJ press release, and it does NOT mention the FCA.

I've updated the blog post accordingly. Thanks for pointing it out.
