RAC Program Update
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) now posts proposed Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) topics online in addition to approved RAC topics. This process now provides stakeholders the opportunity to review the proposed RAC topics and provide feedback before they are finalized.
The proposed topics are open for comment for 30 days. After the 30th day, the review topics will be approved by CMS. The RACs will then post the topics to their websites for an additional 14 days prior to beginning the reviews. Feedback or comments may be emailed to CMS at RAC@cms.hhs.gov. In addition, any questions or concerns about a RAC topic may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
