FY 2010 was the first year in which the Recovery Auditors (RAC) began actively identifying and correcting
improper payments under the National Recovery Audit program. All the Recovery Auditors began
reviewing claims in October 2009. In the past fiscal year, the Recovery Auditors identified and corrected
$92.3 million in combined overpayments and underpayments. Eighty-two percent of all Recovery Audit
program corrections were collected overpayments, and 18 percent were identified underpayments that
were refunded to providers. $18.8 million in Medicare overpayments were collected for durable medical equipment.
