In 2014, nearly 4,000 new FCA matters were initiated. The vast majority of cases are qui tam cases filed by whistleblowers, with health care providers constituting the largest proportion of the financial recoveries. Whistleblowers are increasing pursuing claims even when the government has decided not to intervene. Fiscal year 2015 promises to be another big year.
