Medicare RAC audits
The RAC(s) Recovery Audit Contract will pursue the identification of Medicare claims which contain non MSP improper payments for which payment was made or should have been made under part A or B of title XVIII of the Social Security Act.
Medical claims audits embody significant risk to revenues and profit margins for any healthcare provider. These audits typically include very complex appeals processes with stiff penalties such as automatic recoupment of funds if appeals deadlines are not met.
Anyone who files claims with Medicare will be audited, to start no later than January 2010. This includes physicians, hospitals, home health agencies and Durable Medical Equipment providers.
