The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "According to provisions of the False Claims Act, whistleblowers receive a portion of the settlement as a reward for their information, usually between 10 and 30 percent. We are extremely interested in talking to pharmaceutical companies or medical device insiders if they possess well documented proof a current drug or medical device is defective, because the rewards really can be in the millions." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
In one recent example, medical device company Boston Scientific Corp and its subsidiaries Guidant LLC, Guidant Sales LLC, and Cardiac Pacemakers Inc agreed to pay $30 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act*. According to a press release from the Department of Justice, the company allegedly sold defective implantable defibrillators. The heart devices were then implanted into Medicare patients.
In this case, the whistleblower will receive $2.25 million as a reward for providing the incriminating evidence.
