Red Flag Rules for HIPAA Delayed Once Again

From the Kilpatrick Stockton Health and Welfare Team:

The FTC Red Flags Rule was scheduled to go into effect on November 1, 2009.  However, at the request of members of Congress, the Federal Trade Commission is delaying enforcement of the Red Flags Rule until June 1, 2010.  The FTC announcement is located here:

A few months ago, we published a Legal Alert detailing how the Red Flags Rule applies to health and welfare plans, and this delay is welcome news for those sponsors who have been struggling with their debit card providers.  Our prior Legal Alert is located here:
