Missouri False Claims Act

The Missouri false claims act applies only to fraud involving the state Medicaid program.

The Missouri law is not a “qui tam” statute. Although it provides a reward of 10 percent to persons who are the original source of information leading to a recovery, there is not a provision for a whistleblower to bring a private action on behalf of the state. There is no reward if the whistleblower planned or initiated the violation.
