CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 04/03/2009
On Feburay 4, 2009, the protest of the award of the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) contracts was settled. This means that CMS will now continue implementation of the permanent RAC program and should be able to meet its January 1, 2010, deadline. This week, we will summarize what this means in terms of the implementation schedule and how you may wish to prepare for future dealings with RACs. As always, please email any questions, comments, or suggestions to the author of this CodeMap Compliance Briefing, Dr. Charles Root.
