The FTC Red Flags Rule faces another likely challenge, based on a January 27, 2010 letter sent to the FTC by the American Medical Association, the American Osteopathic Association, the American Dental Association, and the American Veterinary Medical Association. In that letter, the four health care organizations requested that the Red Flags Rule not be applied to health care professionals (based on the reasoning of the recent court decision that it does not apply to lawyers). I assume that if the FTC rejects this request, suit will be filed by these groups, just as the AICPA has filed suit on behalf of accountants to except them from the Red Flags Rules.
