Handling Qui Tam/
Whistleblower Claims

Hertz Schram has represented hundreds of whistleblowers who have successfully recovered millions of dollars by reporting qui tam false claims/fraud. Whistleblowers are fundamental to ensuring that stolen taxpayers’ money is rightfully returned to the governments’ treasuries. Hertz Schram represents whistleblowers nationwide in federal and state False Claims Act cases. The False Claims Acts provide financial incentives to whistleblowers (referred to as “relators”) who successfully report these frauds.

False claims for payment occur with extraordinary frequency, particularly where there are vulnerable patients. Healthcare fraud gives rise to the exploitation of the most vulnerable sectors of our society; individuals with chronic health conditions like cancer, dementia, on hospice; homebound receiving home health services, and residents of nursing homes.

Fraud against the governments is not unique to the healthcare world. False claims cases can be brought based on theft of funds designated for various government funded programs, including: Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Education (DOE).
