CMS implements hospital-friendly reforms to Medicaid Integrity Program

Recovery Auditor Report, October 28, 2010

On October 25, AHA News Now published information on a new CMS policy that prohibits Medicaid integrity contractors (MICs) from auditing hospital claims that are more than five years old and must allow hospitals at least 30 days to respond to medical record requests. CMS sent the notification to state Medicaid directors earlier this month.
