How has your facility integrated the Recovery Audit Contractor Program (RAC)?
According to CMS’s most recent update of March 2011, overpayments collected since the demonstration amount to $313.2 million while underpayments are limited to $52.6 million. With a 6:1 ratio in favor of overpayments collected, how long can your facility hold off a RAC collection?
New issues are being added every week for validation and/or medical necessity review. Find out the Top Issue per Recovery Auditor announced by CMS in their Medicare Fee-for-Service Recovery Audit Program as of March 2011 .
