Red Flag Rule Update

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Delays Implementation of the Red Flag Rule...  The FTC has delayed implementation of the Red Flag Rule until June 1, 2010.  Last week, the House of Representatives passed legislation that would exempt healthcare practices with 20 or fewer employees from the Red Flag Rule.  The Senate has not yet taken action on this issue, but in a release on October 30, the FTC indicated they did not want to begin enforcing a regulation that Congress plans to supersede.  As such, the FTC pushed back the implementation date of the regulation from November 1, 2009 to June 1, 2010.


Doctors and staff, even with this new update, it is crucial that you take proper steps to protect your patients Medical Identity.  As The Red Flag Rule is enforced next year, we would all be best served to be prepared and be ahead of this curve.  Additional updates will be provided to y ou as they become available.
