CMS discusses RAC expansion, ICD-10, and never events

CMS hosted a Hospital & Hospital Quality Open Door Forum (ODF) conference call October 9, during which it discussed several topics of interest to IPPS hospitals. Below is a summary of those topics.

A representative from CMS’ Division of Recovery Audit Operations, which oversees the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program, provided an update on the permanent RAC program.
