Medicare Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) have, in 2009, begun their work auditing the charts and notes of hospitals, physicians and physical therapists.

Their activities have, as they impact physical therapists, have been discussed in this blog, also here, and here.

During the Medicare RAC Demonstration Project inpatient hospitals were the primary target, accounting for over 84% of the recovered amounts.

Physicians (and physical therapists) accounted for less than $19 million of almost a billion dollars recovered.
