Medicare RACs attack

As noted across the blogosphere the Medicare Recovery Audit Contractors are aiming their guns at health care providers after a 4-month hiatus.

Their primary target is inpatient hospitals.

That's where the money is.

Witch Hunt?

The federal government sees health care providers as a revenue source.

RACs bid for the right to audit and collect overpayments from providers. The RACs then keep a portion of those overpayments.

Some say the rewards to the RACs could lead to over-aggressive collection efforts.

Do you think RACS are unfairly incentivized to target and collect overpayments?

Do you think physical therapists in private practice need to worry?
