The Washington FCA applies just to false claims submitted to the state’s Medicaid program. Notably, the Act has no statute of limitations.

A successful whistleblower can receive between 15% and 25% of the recovered proceeds in cases where the state intervenes, and between 25% and 30% if the state declines to intervene. The law also protects those who suffer employment retaliation for blowing the whistle; retaliation claims must be brought no more than three years after the retaliation occurs.
