Bad for Your Health: Lawsuit Advertising Implications and Solutions

The DOJ’s complaint was the first time the government intervened in a whistleblower-led lawsuit over alleged Medicare Advantage fraud. Before the DOJ dropped the case, a California judge said it was too vague, didn’t show intentional wrongdoing, and failed to prove that the government would have withheld payment had it known of the alleged violations.
