Long Awaited Medicaid Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) Program Is Here Now. Get Prepared For More Active Audit
As of February 1, 2012 every state had either submitted a plan for a Medicaid RAC program or had one approved. If you are enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid, you need to be aware of both Medicare and Medicaid RACS. This provides yet another layer of auditing of claims that can lead to recovery of payments if providers are not diligent in their claims process. As with the Medicare RAC program, you should anticipate more active audit activity, as many Medicaid RACs are paid on a contingency fee basis. Home health and hospice providers, who have been largely ignored by Medicare RACs should not expect Medicaid RACs to take a similar approach.
Register for this 60 minute power packed audio conference where our expert speaker Robert W. Markette, Jr. will walk you down through the Medicaid RAC statute and regulation to provide an overview of how these programs work and where they differ from the Medicare RAC programs. In addition, get reviews on areas that a Medicaid RAC is most likely to focus on. Robert will also address responding to document requests, including time frames for responses, processes to have in place to ensure timely responses, and when to consider involving counsel.
Also the speaker will discuss responding to findings and the appeals process.
Take A Look At What You Will Learn:
