Deficit Reduction Act encourages whistle-blowers

An article in Modern Healthcare by Mark Taylor outlines some of the provisions in the federal Deficit Reduction Act that are intended to cut fraud by encouraging whistleblowers.

One provision requires organizations receiving more than $5 million in Medicaid money to train employees, vendors, managers, agents and contractors on state and federal false claims laws. Another provision gives states additional incentives to pass their own false claims acts by allowing them 10 percent of the federal share of any recoveries made under the Act.

The article was posted on the Modern Healthcare website on February 27, 2006.
