Court rules physicians not subject to red flags rule
A federal appeals court has decided that physicians who bill after providing services to their patients should not be subject to the Federal Trade Commission’s red flags rule for creditors. In December 2010, Congress passed a clarification to the original rule to specifically define who should count as a creditor. The new court decision reinforces the clarification and further eliminates any confusion about who is subject to complying with the red flags rule.
More information about the recent court decision is available from the AMA.
