That’s 87% of all FCA judgments and settlements. $678 million of the health care recoveries came from DOJ initiated enforcement actions. $1.9 billion of the health care recoveries were generated by cases brought by whistleblowers who filed qui tam actions. Qui tam actions remain a principal driver of FCA enforcement in the health care space.

Enforcement targeted pharmaceutical and medical device companies, managed care entities, hospitals, pharmacies, hospice organizations, laboratories, and physicians. The recoveries also reflect DOJ’s intent to hold individuals, not only corporations, accountable in FCA cases.

The Thought Leaders in Health Law® video series tracks the latest trends in multiple areas of the health care and life sciences industries, featuring attorneys and advisors from Epstein Becker Green and EBG Advisors.
