Red Flags Rule Compliance
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued regulations requiring any business that may provide credit to customers to take certain steps to guard against identity theft. This “Red Flags Rule” extends to health care providers, including dentists. The deadline to comply with this Rule has been extended multiple times and is now November 1, 2009.
As an EXCLUSIVE MEMBER BENEFIT, the American Dental Association (ADA) has created a guide for compliance with the new Red Flags Rule. This guide is a FREE benefit ONLY for members. The ADA has estimated that it would cost the average non-member dental office $2,000 or more become compliant – making this guide a huge savings to members.
***Please beware, there are several vendors and seminar providers (charging hundreds, even thousands, of dollars) to help you with compliance. Whether you purchase these products and services is your choice, however, it is not necessary to do so.***
