Healthcare providers are no strangers to the RAC (Recovery Audit Contractor) audit program. Since 2009, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has awarded contracts to private companies to review Medicare claims and recover potential overpayments. We’ve all recently had a welcome break from RAC audits, but that’s about to change. Last month, CMS awarded new contracts to several companies, and a new wave of audits is set to begin as early as January!

RAC Audits are Back!
After an extended break, it appears the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) audits will soon start to pick up steam. At this time, CMS is initiating contract modifications to the current recovery auditor contracts to allow the recovery auditors to restart some reviews. Most reviews will be done on an automated basis, but a limited number will be complex reviews of topics selected by CMS. Complex reviews may include DRG validations (coding reviews), surgery, and therapy.
