"Fraud against the Medicare program may take many forms," stated the Kansas healthcare whistleblower lawyer. "It can be adjusting healthcare records in order to earn more from Medicare, surcharging the government, supplying low-quality products or services, and many other activities. The government counts on private whistleblowers to come forward with firsthand knowledge and evidence of dishonest activities and the government rewards the whistleblowers for their important help. Through qui tam lawsuits, whistleblowers are able to bring civil claims against those parties on behalf of the government under the False Claims Act and can be rewarded for it."

It additionally allows a healthcare worker with information of fraud against the Medicare program to file a whistleblower case on behalf of the government. In exchange for their information and effort, the whistleblowers may be entitled to collect incentives of between 15 to 30% of the recovery by the government. The act additionally has stipulations for whistleblower protection against any company retribution which may result from submitting a lawsuit or accepting a deal with the federal government.
