ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the recovery audit contractors (RAC) program in the U.S. According to the author, the national implementation of the RAC program can save Medicare as much as $10 billion over five years. He added that the program is also intended to provide information to Medicare claims processing contractors to assist in preventing improper payments. Moreover, to prepare for a RAC review, providers should educate physicians and all direct staff on the basic infrastructure for the provisions of care, create compliance assessment tools and programs and conduct internal assessment and develop and implement a corrective plan.
