RAC audits continue to increase

A new report from the American Hospital Association says recovery and contractor (RAC) audits continue to increase. Of the 1,233 hospitals that responded to the survey, nearly 60,000 medical record requests have been made and more than 30,000 complex audit denials have been issued since last quarter. Nearly two-thirds of medical records reviewed by RACS did not contain an overpayment. Download the report.
