For instance, your employer may have a contract with the government and, through this contract, falsifies bills or inflates costs. Or, perhaps, you work in health care and your hospital is billing Medicare for incorrect procedures to increase its revenues. These fraudulent actions should be stopped so that all of us, as taxpayers, are benefited.
As a federal prosecutor, C. Dean Furman served as the Health Care Fraud coordinator for the Western District of Kentucky. In this position, he worked with whistleblower lawsuits, called qui tams, to investigate and prosecute health care crimes. Now, in private practice, he works with the United States Attorney's Office, to represent whistleblowers as they pursue justice through these qui tam lawsuits.
