Program Materials

This seminar will examine the FTC's Red Flags rules and what healthcare providers must do now to ensure compliance with the new identity theft prevention rules.

Description

The Red Flags rules, recently issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other federal agencies, target identity theft in a variety of businesses. The rules require healthcare providers to develop and implement programs to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft and medical fraud.

The FTC announced it will begin enforcing the Red Flags rules on Nov. 1, 2009, after a delay to allow businesses more time to implement identity theft prevention plans. Many healthcare providers remain unprepared—and are surprised that HIPAA compliance is not enough.

Healthcare providers and their counsel must immediately review their patient records and billing policies and procedures to ensure Red Flag compliance before enforcement begins.

Listen as our authoritative panel of health law attorneys explains the Red Flags rules and how they apply to healthcare providers. The panel will outline best practices for healthcare providers to fully comply with the new requirements.
