Yes. The most lucrative are whistleblower awards, most often seen in large, corporate cases. The award break is:
• If the government joins the suit, the award to whistleblowers is 15-25 percent of the amount recovered.
• If the government does not join the suit, the award is 25-30 percent of the amount recovered.
Two-thirds of large corporate cases are initiated through whistleblowers. There is also a reward of up to $1,000 for reporting suspected Medicare fraud to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), providing the person reporting is not involved in the fraud and is not being investigated, and providing the recovery from the fraud is at least $100, the fraud can be substantiated and the person reporting the fraud has not received other government rewards.
