Permanent link  FTC delays Red Flags Rule again

06/01/2010

The FTC has delayed enforcement of the Red Flags Rule through December 31, 2010. Read the official statement here.

The most recent action before this latest delay was when the House in October 2009 passed HR 3763, which exempted small business, including dental practices, with fewer than 20 employees from the legislation. However, that bill has been delayed in the Senate, pending the financial reform package.

According to DrBicuspid.com:

The logjam may be on the verge of clearing, however. On May 25, Sens. John Thune (R-SD) and Mark Begich (D-AK) introduced S. 3416, the Senate's version of H.R. 3763, which also calls for the exemption of certain small businesses -- including dentists and physicians -- from the Red Flag rules.
The ADA has resources for dentists on the Red Flags Rule.
