Adventist Health Pays $14.1 Million To Settle Whistleblower Lawsuit Alleging Self-referral And Kickback Violations By LA Hospital

The whistleblower team said the settlement reflects the diligent efforts of Catherine Swann, assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California, and her investigative team, led by David Poulson.

The federal False Claims Act and the California False Claims Act enable private citizens to sue entities that are defrauding the federal and state governments and receive a reward if funds are recovered as a result. The whistleblowers in this case plan to use their rewards to form a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the healthcare of the many underserved groups in Southern California among other charitable causes.

Phillips & Cohen LLP is the nation's most successful law firm representing whistleblowers. Its cases have resulted in governments recovering more than $11 billion in civil settlements and criminal fines. Two of its cases recovered a total of $3.5 billion as part of the two largest healthcare fraud settlements in the U.S. Phillips & Cohen represents whistleblowers in "qui tam" (False Claims Act) cases and claims filed under the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission whistleblower programs. For its work on whistleblower cases, Phillips & Cohen was selected for the National Law Journal's elite "Plaintiffs' Hot List" for 2004, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012. See Twitter @FraudMatters.

Hirst Law Group P.C. represents whistleblowers in federal and state False Claims Act and employment cases around the country. Cases handled by the firm's staff, while working for the United States and since joining the firm, have been reported on television, radio and newspapers nationally and abroad, including the largest recovery against a single hospital in US history, which became the subject of a book Coronary (Simon and Schuster, 2007). The firm includes a former supervisor of False Claims Act cases for the government and a former government fraud auditor. See
