On May 20, 2009, the President signed into law the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009, which includes significant changes to the federal False Claims Act (FCA). Among other things, the new law expands the scope of FCA liability, provide for new investigative tools, and make it easier for qui tam relators to bring and maintain FCA suits on behalf of the government. Although the law is primarily targeted at potential fraud involving recipients of economic stimulus funds in the financial services industry, the FCA provisions also could affect members of the health care industry. A Reed Smith analysis of the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 is available on Reed Smith’s Life Sciences Legal Update blog.
