Part D RAC Program Vendor Selected
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) is taking steps in anticipation of its Medicare Part D RAC program release; this component of the RAC program is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2011. The director of the Medicare Program Integrity Group, John Spiegel, announced that CMS selected a vendor for the Part D RAC program. CMS has entered into a contract with ACLR Strategic Business Solutions, a Michigan company, to perform the recovery audits. In the near future, CMS will provide further information regarding Medicare Part C and D RAC programs through a dedicated website.
