Abstract
The ethical transformation in health care that gained momentum one score and seven years ago has its origins in a law signed on March 2, 1863, by the president famous for the words “four score and seven years ago” uttered that same year. The False Claims Act (the “FCA”), also known as “Lincoln’s Law” and the “Informer’s Act,” has evolved considerably since its enactment to become the “primary litigative tool for combating fraud.” Indeed, the FCA has altered the health care landscape so profoundly that even General Sherman would be envious of that single individual who now stands in prime position to survey the fraud and abuse behemoth from on high: Meet the modern day hall monitor, your Chief Compliance Officer.
