Lawyer For Texas Durable Medical Equipment Providers
More and more, durable medical equipment (DME) providers are being singled out among other health care businesses and targeted for investigation by Medicare. Recovery audit contractors (RACs) hired by Medicare look into the billing and claims that DME companies submit to Medicare.
The RACs are paid a percentage of what they discover in false billing and overpayments. That percentage rate was 12.5 percent and applied equally to all types of health care organizations. Recently, however, the rate increased to 17.5 percent for DME companies only. As a result, there is a higher incentive for RACs to go after DME companies exclusively.
