Questions Posed by Audience as Well as Panelist Familiar With RAC Program to Key CMS Official

MINNEAPOLIS, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) prepare to contact health care providers as early as late June or early July, the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) announced it will hold a critical and timely web conference on June 23, 2009, Advance RAC Forum: Questions and Answers with CMS and Leading Providers about the New RAC Rollout. Click on the following link to register: http://www.hcca-info.org/RAC.

Health care providers will have an opportunity to have their most current questions and concerns about the new permanent RAC program addressed during this 90-minute program. Following brief presentations on "hot" issues, leading hospital compliance officers and legal counsel familiar with the four-state pilot RAC program will pose questions to Connie Leonard, Division Director, a key CMS official responsible for implementing the RAC program. This will be followed by a Q&A session open to audience participants.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Rebilling following RAC denials
  • Role of voluntary repayments
  • Key advice around coordination that providers must adopt
  • Appeal strategy and tactics, including advice on data to be presented during appeals
  • Use of the CMS and RAC contractor lists of issues undergoing review (RAC appeal issues that now must be submitted to CMS)
  • Other questions from the audience and panel
