2010 Recovery Audit Program Results

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.
