RAC Webinars

On the second Tuesday of each month, we host “RACs:  Being Proactive.”  Our members-only presentations focus upon newly approved issues and other high-risk areas.  We discuss the underlying rule(s), audit and response strategies and operational safeguards to manage your compliance risks.

On the fourth Tuesday of each month, we host “RACs:  What We Are Learning.”  In these members-only sessions, we respond to Subscriber questions and inquiries.  We also share with our Subscribers what we are learning about the RACs and their recovery efforts and techniques.  As they become available, we also discuss public decisions from ALJs, the MAC and the federal district courts regarding RACs.

RAC AudioCourse

In July of 2009, Aegis Compliance & Ethics Center, LLP, in conjunction with Meade & Roach, LLP and SmithAmundsen, LLC, presented an intensive four-part RAC AudioCourse focusing on RAC audit process management. The lectures of this course take providers step-by-step from preparing for the RACs, to the day the organization receives its first record request, through the appeal decision-making process and how to conduct the appeals.  We are now offering free downloads of the MP3 recordings of this AudioCourse.
