Minnesota Off Label Drug Use and Marketing Fraud Attorney

OFF LABEL DRUG USE AND MARKETING FRAUD

When the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves a prescription drug for sale and use, it attaches a specific purpose for that drug. If a doctor prescribes that drug for a non-listed use and bills Medicare or Medicaid for payment, that violates FDA rules and is known as “off label” prescription use. Similarly, if drug manufacturers market a drug for a non-FDA approved purpose, that is marketing fraud. There have been instances where anti-depressant approved prescription drugs have been prescribed by physicians or clinics for weight loss. This is an example of fraud.

Any employee of physicians and clinics who becomes aware of this fraud, can bring a False Claims or qui tam lawsuit. In that litigation, the employee can be entitled to a percentage of the recovered monetary award. Actually, even non-employees or any US citizens are also eligible to file qui tam lawsuits.

If you are aware of physician or healthcare provider fraud involving these kinds of false marketing, false claims, or false prescriptions, the law firm of Tarshish Cody PLC will represent your rights to awards from the courts. We do not bill for fees unless we win your case. You can schedule a free initial consultation with our attorneys who will discuss the information you have and advise you on your legal rights under the qui tam and False Claims laws. We welcome your call today at 952-361-5556 (or fill out the free case evaluation form below) to help you through the legal issues of your Off Label Drug Use and Marketing Fraud case.
