Product Description

Get the tools and expert tips you need to keep your facility on the straight and narrow -- and out of the RACs' crosshairs.

The RAC audits continue and, with Medicaid RACs on the horizon, are only going to increase. If you aren't prepared, you could fall victim. Prepare yourself for the arrival of Recovery Audit Contractors before they come knocking on your door.

Join health law and litigation expert Robert W. Markette, Jr. for this 1-hour audio event that will get you ready to take on the RACs. You'll not only learn the steps you need to take when the RAC requests documentation, but also steps to take before the RAC starts asking questions.

Arm yourself with the latest RAC audit information, and steer clear of trouble spots. Bonus: Find out how -- and when --to appeal.


Event Essentials Include:

  • 1 basis for recovery that you can easily prevent
  • Key areas you should routinely audit in anticipation of RACs
  • Places to look to identify new risk areas
  • What is an automated review and how does it differ from a complex review?
  • How Recovery Audit Contractors' practices may indicate areas of higher risk for audits
  • Identify trends that could put you at risk for audits
  • Know the steps that are involved in an appeal and why appealing may be a good idea
  • What types of facilities and specialties RACs are targeting now - and who is next
