A Word about RAC
In January 2010 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) launched the RAC program, making all healthcare entities that bill Medicare subject to periodic audits. Nursing supervisors, nursing case managers, DONs, and other management-level nurses should be knowledgeable about the RAC system and its role in the Medicare billing process.
