The AMA, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the Medical Society of the District of Columbia today filed a suit in federal court seeking to prevent the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) from extending identify theft regulations to physicians. Today’s lawsuit on behalf of physicians does not suspend the looming deadline. While litigation seeking to free physicians from the unlawful enforcement of the red flags rule proceeds, physicians can turn to online resources from the AMA to help them comply with the FTC’s rule. More to come on Monday on the NCMS Doctor to Doctor Blog.
