Maryland Expands its False Claims Act

Posted by Jaime Jones and Bevin Seifert

On May 12, 2015, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed into law Senate Bill 374, an expansion of the Maryland False Claims Act (“MFCA”), which took effect on June 1, 2015. The prior version of the MFCA was limited to Medicaid and healthcare-related fraud, whereas the new law covers any claims made to the state or to local government.
