18 Apr '13

After California amended the California False Claims Act (CFCA), effective January 1, 2013, it asked the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human services to review the amended CFCA and determine whether it meets the requirements of section 1909 of the Social Security Act (Section 1909), which provides a financial incentive for states to enact false claims acts as robust as the federal FCA.  In a letter dated April 3, 2013, the OIG informed California’s Attorney General that the amended CFCA meets the requirements of Section 1909.  A copy of the letter may be found here.
