Seeing red: FTC to begin enforcement of identity theft 'Red Flag' Rules June 1, 2010
If the Red Flag Rules apply to an organization as described above, the organization is required to implement written policies and procedures to identify and address the “red flags” that indicate identity theft. For healthcare organizations, the key is developing a list of red flags that may indicate that a person presenting for services is not who they say they are. In practice, organizations may already have procedures that cover much of what is required, but the new rules require formalized processes in written policies and procedures.
