Third Circuit Reinstates Kickback Claim Against Medicare Managed Care Plans
BNA Health Care Fraud Report
July 13, 2011
For nearly two decades, the national healthcare whistleblower firm Nolan Auerbach has fought to recover government healthcare dollars infected by illegal kickback schemes. This long-standing track record has placed the firm on the radar screen of industry publications. For example, a leading healthcare publication sought out Nolan Auerbach partner Jeb White after a federal court of appeals held that a Medicare Managed Care Plan can be held liable under the False Claims Act for paying illegal kickbacks to physicians and beneficiaries. Mr. White applauded the court for correctly interpreting the reach of False Claims Act’s liability provisions.
