Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Anna Grizzle was quoted in an article for Bloomberg BNA outlining the CMS update released May 3 allowing recovery audit contractors (RACs) to request additional documents from healthcare providers with high claim denial rates. As Anna points out, “the new document request limits are an indication of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ efforts to target high-risk providers based on data analysis.”

The full article, “Medicare Says Auditors Can Ask Providers for More Documents,” was published by Bloomberg BNA’s Health Law Resource Center on May 6, 2016, and is available online.
