ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) program, which is aimed at recovering Medicare overpayments to physicians, to be launched by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in 2009. One hundred medical professional organizations, including the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), have collaborated to express their concern, in response to the scheme. A guide to help doctors understand how the program may affect their practices was compiled by the AAFP Practice Support Division.
