This 50-State Survey summarizes the fraud and abuse statutes, regulations, and other pertinent authorities for each state. Most states have specific laws and regulations on these subjects, and while many are similar and often borrow from federal authorities, each state uses its own terminology and thresholds for governmental oversight. The 700-page survey aims to simplify the process of legal research and serve as a primer for those new to fraud law. A summary of laws and regulations are provided in the following general categories (with some states including additional categories):

  • Anti-Kickback
  • Prohibitions on Self-Referral
  • False Claims & Fraud and Abuse
  • General Whistleblower Protections
  • Anti-Rebate & Fee Splitting
  • Helpful Links

This update provides direct links to each of the statutes and regulations identified for each state. The “Helpful Links” section at the end of each summary includes direct links to websites that the user may find helpful when researching the fraud laws of a particular jurisdiction.

AHLA expresses sincere gratitude to the attorneys and law firms who have compiled the information in this survey. They are identified within the summary for each jurisdiction.
