The five elements pertaining to the establishment of a false claim under the False Claims Act are; “the government must establish that the person submitted the claim with actual knowledge, in deliberate ignorance, or with reckless disregard for the claim’s truth or falsity” (Cleverley). Privacy Standards were designed to accomplish the following three broad objectives: Define and limit the circumstances in which individuals use and disclose patient health information, establish individual rights regarding patient health information, and require protected individuals to adopt administrative safeguards to protect the confidentiality and privacy of patient healthcare information. According to our text, HIPAA prohibits the disclosure of any individual health information that is transferred or maintained electronically such as emails and faxes. HIPAA privacy standards also ensures that individuals have right of deciding which information should not be disclosed under any circumstances. Finally, HIPAA privacy standards also ensure that all security standards are followed by all covered individuals in order to protect personal health information (Cleverley).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
