The award represents the highest whistleblower award in the program's history and more than double the $114 million whistleblower award ward to a SEC whistleblower in October of 2020. Whistleblower awards can range from 10 to 30 percent of the money collected when the monetary sanctions exceed $1 million.

These lawsuits have resulted in several successful settlements for whistleblowers. They have also resulted in disciplinary action or termination against guilty parties.
In March 2018, pharmaceutical company Novartis AG agreed to pay a $19 million fine in a False Claims Act settlement.
