Whistleblower Laws in Town 'n' Country, Florida

The state of Florida has enacted the Florida False Claims Act in order to allow private citizens who know of fraud against the state’s Medicaid program the option to come forward with a whistleblower legal action.


A whistleblower lawsuit, or qui tam lawsuit, is a civil suit brought by a private citizen on behalf of the state in an endeavour to collect from entities that purposefully defraud state programs for their own gain by presenting deceptive or misleading claims for payment, abusing state funds, or deceptively concealing or avoiding responsibilities to pay the state.


Under the Florida False Claims Act, anyone who submits a whistleblower claim is safeguarded against employer retaliation. The whistleblower may also be rewarded between 15 and 25 percent of the recovered funds if the state elects to join the suit. If the complainant pursues the claim independently, they might be entitled to a financial reward of between 25 and 30 percent of the recovery.

Liability of the Defendant in Florida

Under the Florida False Claims Act, an offender can be required to pay the state government damages in the amount of approximately three times the quantity of damage to the state. The defendant can also be ordered to pay fines of $5,500 to $11,000 per offense.

What is

Medicare Advantage Fraud

Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are privately run healthcare options offering Medicare-eligible individuals additional services that are not included in traditional Medicare. These organizations receive payment from Medicare for each of their members that vary according to their risk adjustment. Some Medicare Advantage organizations overestimate and exaggerate a member’s risk or a patient’s diagnoses to get higher payments from Medicare. They do this by:


The MA provider increases the severity of the patient’s condition, submitting a more serious diagnosis code to get paid by Medicare at a higher rate.

Chart reviews

The MA provider reviews charts to add additional diagnosis codes.

Chart mining

The MA provider mines patient’s charts to look for conditions that are not current but can put as current to increase their payments from Medicare.

Adding unsupported diagnosis

Coders are directed to add codes based on other information in the chart.

Not removing old diagnosis codes

The MA provider increases the severity of the patient’s condition, submitting a more serious diagnosis code to get paid by Medicare at a higher rate.

Sham RADV audits

The MA provider reviews charts to add additional diagnosis codes.

Incentivizing doctors
