(Report) World Privacy Forum Publishes Red Flag Rule Suggestions for Hospitals and Providers; New FTC-Enforced Rules Go Into Effect Nov. 1, Can Apply to Health Care Providers
Date:9/24/2008

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Privacy Forum's latest report, Red Flag and Address Discrepancy Requirements: Suggestions for Health Care Providers, discusses the applicability of the new FTC regulations to the health care sector along with suggestions for providers. The report addresses newly issued regulations by the Federal Trade Commission that require financial institutions and creditors to develop and implement written identity theft prevention programs. Health care providers -- whether they are for-profit, non-profit, or governmental entities -- may have obligations under the new rules.

Medical identity theft is a real concern in the health care sector, and is included expressly in the Red Flag Rules Guidelines. The possibility of medical identity theft gives rise to a duty to monitor for the potential that patients may be victims, among other duties outlined by the new regulations. The regulations take effect November 1, 2008, and will be enforced by the Federal Trade Commission.

"The Red Flag Rules are an important opportunity for the health care sector to protect consumers and patients from the impacts of medical identity theft," said World Privacy Forum executive director Pam Dixon. "If implemented correctly, the new regulations could ease some of the problems consumers have been experiencing with the impacts of this crime."

The World Privacy Forum published the first major report on medical identity theft and brought that crime to national attention for the first time.
