After you have reviewed the cases that are posted in the "Cases" thread for Week 2 please  select one and explain why you agree, or disagree with the decision. I chose the United States v. Krizek case because it happens all the time and this could also affect the  money that could help other individuals pay for their own care. I feel that anything that is filed on  purpose that is not the truth should be filed against you and that person should have to face those  consequences. Not only are they taking away care that could be provided to other patients they are  committing a crime the same as theft. It’s the same if someone worked one four hours and the company  decided to only pay them for one hour. I feel the wife knew what she was doing and was just trying to  fatten her wallet. The False Claims Act of 1986 prohibits knowingly presenting, or causing to be  presented to the government a false claim for payment; knowingly making, using, or causing to be made  or used a false record or statement to get a false claim paid or approved by the government (Pozgar, p.  63). This is another example where the doctor’s prey on their patients to make more money without  doing the work or care needed. A criminal act overall was committed and they should pay the price.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
