RAC Recoveries Accelerating, Look Out

Take a look at this summary report from the CMS.
It will open in a new window.

Basically from Oct 2009 to Mar 2011 the RACs have recovered $365.8M.

Of that over half was collected from Jan 2011 to Mar 2011.

Things are speeding up.

There has been, and still is, a learning curve going on at the RACs.

Once they get fully spun up…look out.

It is interesting to see, yet not surprising at all, that both Region C & Region D RAC top issue are identical.

Really, why not?

I would expect each RAC to share their results among each other to ensure each operates as efficiently as possible.

It is not like they are competing for the same “customers”.

What I don’t understand is how the 3 year demonstration period resulted in $1.03B in recoveries while now, about a year-and-a-half into the full blown program, the recovery is not on track to meet the same goal.

Granted, with the acceleration that is occurring, this exponential increase may take the actual recoveries well past the demo program.

Wake up and smell the coffee Docs…this is going to become a huge headache for you.
