With RAC officially underway, hospitals and providers should begin fine-tuning their RAC preparedness programs—particularly those hospitals in states CMS has slated to be among the first to begin the permanent RAC program (as indicated on the updated CMS phase-in map in yellow and light green).

CMS has promised to make outreach programs available to providers to familiarize them with their policies and contact information. Watch for these town hall meetings and make sure you’re represented at all meetings scheduled by your RAC.
