Illinois Pharmaceutical Fraud Whistleblower Representation
At Loevy & Loevy in Chicago, we are one of the nation’s most accomplished whistleblower law firms. We provide skilled representation and sound legal advice to individuals looking to bring whistleblower claims, also known as False Claims Act or qui tam claims, against those who are committing pharmaceutical fraud.
Pharmaceutical fraud, affecting both Medicare and Medicaid, costs the government billions of dollars each year.
Do You Have a Valid Whistleblower Claim?
In determining whether or not you have a pharmaceutical whistleblower case on your hands, it can be helpful to consider the following textbook example of a pharmaceutical fraud case. We have been representing a salesperson for a pharmaceutical company which has been marketing a drug to doctors and telling them to prescribe it ways which are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Medicare and Medicaid only provide reimbursement when prescription drugs are being used in an FDA-approved way. So, if the drug is marketed to be used in a way that is not FDA-approved, any reimbursements given for those uses would be considered fraud.
Another common instance of pharmaceutical fraud occurs when drug companies and suppliers do not provide a discount to the government as required by law. To learn more about our past results in these cases, visit our Big Wins page.
