FTC: Clinic rules not what doctor ordered

Chicago Tribune, June 16, 2008
The Federal Trade Commission has issued a rebuke to the effort by an Illinois' doctor group to regulate retail clinics, saying some of a bill's provisions are anti-competitive and harmful to consumers. The bill would increase regulation of the facilities by requiring permits, curbing their advertising plans and requiring more physician involvement. The regulations are "ways that harm healthcare competition and consumers," according to the FTC.
