The False Claims Act (FCA) is a potent federal law that allows the government, and private litigants suing on behalf of the government, to recover substantial damages and attorneys fees against entities that submit false claims for payment to the government. In recent years, private colleges and universities have become targets of FCA litigation who argue these institutions make “false claims” by receiving federal financial aid when they are not in compliance with Title IV regulations and other provisions of the Higher Education Act.
Join Husch Blackwell attorneys as we discuss the risks the False Claims Act poses to private colleges and universities and how to manage your Title IV compliance efforts to reduce potential liability.
