States given incentives to pass False Claims Acts with Whistleblower provisions

In response to states drafting false claims acts that are not at least as strong as the federal False Claims Act, the government is providing an incentive for states to strengthen and pass these laws.

As part of the 2005 Deficit Reduction Act (DRA), the government will provide a 10 percent increase in the state’s share of Medicaid fraud recoveries if their laws are at least as strong as the federal False Claims Act.
