Revenue Cycle

Trivia winner announced!

Recovery Auditor Report, March 5, 2009

Here are the answers to the trivia questions we asked in the previous issue of The RAC Report:
  1. Will CMS use calendar days or business days when determining the number of days a provider has to submit medical records? (Answer: Calendar)
  2. According to CMS, through August 31, 2008, providers chose to appeal what percentage of RAC determinations? (Answer: 22.5%)
  3. How many states will CMS phase into the RAC permanent program on March 1? (Answer: 24. Note: If you were more specific and took into account the states affected by the MAC transition, we also considered those answers to be correct.)
Thanks to all who participated, and congratulations to our winner, Karen Westerlund, RN, MSN, a compliance auditor at Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Karen will receive a free copy of the HCPro’s new book The HIM Director's Guide to RACs.
