The American Hospital Association (AHA) and AHIP filed this joint amicus brief in United States v. Supervalu Inc. v. Safeway Inc. In the brief, the organizations argue that the federal government’s “erroneous construction and expansion of the FCA [False Claims Act] threatens the legitimate business activities of every government contractor, hospital, healthcare provider, health insurance provider, and grant recipient in the nation,” and would “ultimately divert resources away from the primary missions of AHA’s and AHIP’s members: caring for patients, reducing the cost of care, and ensuring a healthy citizenry.”
