California Government Overpayment Lawyers
Given the amount of money that the federal government and the state of California spend annually on goods and services, the possibility for overpayment regarding certain expenditures is highly likely. When overpayment occurs, new laws demand the return of the funds.
Specifically, in the case of the health care industry, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires the refunding of any identified overpayments by the government.
What Can You Do if You Have Uncovered a Government Overpayment?
Overpayments by the government can and do occur in any industry; deciding how to come forward with information regarding an overpayment may be a difficult decision for an employee to make. To encourage employees to bring forth evidence of overpayments, the government allows what are called qui tam actions.
In this type of lawsuit, a private individual may sue on behalf of the government when illegal activity has occurred. The person bringing the suit is entitled to protections from employer retaliation as well as a percentage of any damages that are recovered.
