Whistleblower pharmaceutical cases
Considering a whistleblower qui tam suit involving pharmaceuticals?
Some pharmaceutical reps pay doctors for improper use of patient records. If you are aware of such activity, our firm can provide you the necessary legal guidance as a whistleblower to move foward in strictest confidence.
Healthcare fraud charges stem from the qui tam provision of the 1986 Federal False Claims Act. This Act allows private citizens to file a lawsuit on behalf of the federal government against anyone who has participated in government fraud. Since this act was passed, healthcare fraud has accounted for more than half of all qui tam damages recovered. According to any article in Bloomberg News, July 28, 2010, Federal fraud cases begun by private citizens against drugmakers, insurers and hospitals will probably surge past last year’s record numbers.
That Bloomberg piece added that last year, federal officials began investigations of 280 whistleblower cases, contributing to a record $1.4 billion in judgments. The healthcare system has been subject to fraud in many areas, from physicians and hospitals to pharmacists, labs and pharmaceutical companies and their sales representatives.
Among other whistleblower allegations, our firm is currently speaking with individuals who are aware of the odious practice engaged by some pharmaceutical sales reps that pay doctors to let them look at patient records to find patients who can be switched to their company's drugs.
