Trusted Los Angeles Medicare Audit Lawyers
If you’re a healthcare provider and providing health care services to recipients in Los Angeles, or the surrounding areas, then you probably have experienced being audited by a RAC – Recovery Audit Contractor. With new health care reform, RAC’s have been extensively auditing claims under Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D in every state since January 2011. Health care reforms have expanded the RAC program to Medicare. Each state is legally required to contract with a RAC no later than December 2010. As a result, Medicare audits are now a part of daily life for healthcare providers.
