Common Forms Of Medical Device Fraud
Although there are many different types of actions that can give rise to a qui tam/whistleblower claim under the federal False Claims Act and the Minnesota Whistleblower Act, some of the most common forms of medical device fraud include:
- Non-approved use or marketing: Medical device fraud can occur when a physician or health care entity markets a medical device or uses it for purposes that have not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
- Kickbacks: When medical professionals have financial arrangements with device manufacturers that incentivize the use or implantation of a particular company’s products, it can amount to an illegal kickback and trigger liability in whistleblower claims.
- Defective medical devices: Those who sell devices that they know or should have known were defective can potentially be held liable for fraud.
- Manufacturing and selling devices outside of contract specifications: When contract specifications are ignored so that the manufacturer or distributor can realize some cost savings, it can trigger a claim for medical device fraud.
