AHA to host November conference calls with CMS and RAC representatives

Recovery Auditor Report, November 3, 2011

The American Hospital Association (AHA) will host four members-only conference calls—one for each recovery auditor region—the first week of November with CMS and recovery auditor officials.

These calls provide AHA members an opportunity to discuss with the two regulatory bodies any process problems they may have encountered with the recovery auditor program. Note the following days and times for the four recovery auditor calls by region:

  • Region A: Friday, November 4, 9– 11 a.m. EST
  • Region B: Tuesday November 1, 1– 3 p.m. EST
  • Region C: Wednesday November 2, 2– 4 p.m. EST
  • Region D: Thursday November 3, 1– 3 p.m. EST

In addition to reviewing the latest updates, speakers on the conference calls will also address critical factors RACs consider when making medical necessity review determinations. To register for one of the conference calls, which are available only to AHA members, visit www.aha.org.
