CMS stands by anti-fraud program

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

BALTIMORE--The recovery audit contractor (RAC) program is on hold for now, but CMS has no plans to scrap it altogether. During a Special Open Door Forum in November, CMS officials said they have put an “automatic stay” on the program due to protests filed by two unsuccessful bidders. Still, it plans to roll out the program nationwide by Jan. 1, 2010.
