|Rule:||Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Roaring Fork Valley Physicians I.P.A., Inc.; FTC File No. 061 0172|
Comments:In this case, it appears that the FTC expressly states that the refusal to accept federal Medicare price controls by a group of physicians is in itself a form of illegal price fixing. I HOPE this is NOT the intent, but that it what it seems to say. Can you comment on that aspect of the decision please?
