FCA's Epic Run In 2010s Will Be Hard To Match In 2020s
False Claims Act Defense attorney Megan Jeschke spoke with Law360 on the newly released statistics for FCA recoveries in the 2010s and how 2019 contributed to the decade's growing statistics. Ms. Jeschke shares what the government might do to increase the amount of FCA recoveries in this new decade. She also weighs in on the government’s possible focus on grants and procurement to increase the amount of FCA recoveries in the 2020s.
"I don’t think the numbers [last year] are surprising or notable in any way," Ms. Jeschke said. “The government, to the extent it’s going to expand upon its False Claims Act recoveries, needs to look broader than just healthcare.”
