Health Leaders Media

The American Medical Association Monday applauded a federal appeals court’s ruling that physicians who bill patients after providing services are not subject to Federal Trade Commission so-called red flag rules that apply to creditors.

AMA President Cecil B. Wilson, MD, said the ruling Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, validates the AMA’s long-standing argument with the Federal Trade Commission about the red flag rules’ application to physicians.
