News & Announcements

  • Under the doctrine of implied false certification, a request for payment submitted in connection with a federal contract, grant, or reimbursement system (such as Medicare) is a “claim” as defined by the False Claims Act (“FCA”). Such a claim constitutes an implicit representation that the person or business submitting the claim has complied with all “material” requirements, including any requirements imposed by statute or regulation, governing the contract, grant, or reimbursement system. A claimant may violate the FCA if not in full compliance with all material requirements when it submits the payment request or withholds information that would show a lack of compliance.
