Louisiana False Claims Act

The Louisiana Medical Assistance Programs Integrity Law applies only to false claims presented under the state’s Medical Assistance Act. “Qui tam” suits may be brought by whistleblowers who discover that false claims have been presented to the Louisiana Medicaid program.

A successful whistleblower will receive between 15 and 25 percent of the proceeds in cases where the state intervenes; if the state does not intervene a successful whistleblower will receive between 25 and 30 percent of the proceeds. These amounts may be reduced if the whistleblower planned or initiated the violation.
