Abstract:     
Among the most striking health law developments in the last quarter-century has been the increasing focus on health care fraud and abuse. Times have changed, perhaps illustrated nowhere as clearly as in the expanding role of the Civil False Claims Act (FCA). Thanks to major amendments in 1986, the FCA now lies at the heart of the federal government's
war on health care fraud. This article reviews these changes in the FCA, from its origins as a tool to ward off "rampant fraud" on the Union Army during the Civil War, through the amendments made in the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 (FERA).
