Check the RAC!

Providers and suppliers that receive request letters from Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) should ensure the following:

  • The claims selected involve issues approved for review on their RAC region’s approved issues list.
  • The request letters meet the timeframes and medical record limits set by CMS.
  • The particular claims at issue have not previously been reviewed by another CMS contractor.
  • A provider or supplier should notify the RAC if it discovers improper issues have been selected for review, the record requests are outside the limitations, or the claims at issue have already been reviewed by another contractor.
