CMS has Delayed the Recovery Auditor Pre-Payment Review Demonstration Program

January 3, 2012

Last week, CMS announced its decision to delay the Recovery Auditor Pre-Payment Review Demonstration Program until further notice. On its website CMS indicated that the delay was due to comments/suggestions received regarding the program and CMS' commitment to consider the comments carefully. Although it is unclear at this time whether CMS will eventually implement the demonstration program as it was initially announced or make significant changes to the program, CMS confirmed that it will provide at least 30 days notice before the demonstration program begins.
