1/2/19: A December 21st press release about the year’s enforcement of the False Claims Act managed to stake out its claim to the page. DOJ recovered more than $2.8 billion in FCA cases in FY 2018. What is interesting in the press release isn’t the total amount recovered but the type of enforcement actions and trends highlighted by that total.
DOJ breaks down its announcement into sections on healthcare fraud, procurement fraud, other types of fraud and recoveries from whistleblower suits. Another section focuses on holding individuals accountable.
