Raiser & Kenniff’s RAC lawyers can help you with all types of issues pertaining to RAC audits. As most physicians and healthcare providers know, Recovery Audit Contractors contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in order to find overpayments and underpayments for services billed. RAC’s review claims submitted by healthcare providers, and try to identify improper payments. Because they are paid on a contingency fee basis – RAC’s are highly motivated when it comes to finding claims that were improperly paid. As a result, healthcare providers dread hearing from an RAC auditor. Their contingency fee is based on the amount of money collected and/or returned.
The RAC program is permanent, and is active in all states, including New York. RAC’s look for improper types if payments, such as those pertaining to incorrectly coded services, non-covered services, duplicate services, and other incorrect payments made. RAC denials can be appealed the medicare appeals process. Raiser & Kenniff has experience handling third party payor audits, and has unique strategies for reducing overpayment demands.
