Medicare Recovery Audit ProgramAs the procurement process comes to an end the new RAC contract awards are imminent for the Medicare Recovery Audit Program. The awards have been held up since 2014 because of post-award protests. The various challenges and delays have resulted in a temporary break in recovery audits for providers. It has also allowed the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to identify some program improvements to address some of the concerns of the provider community. CMS is confident that these changes will result in a more efficient and effective program as they continue to look at minimizing provider burden.
