On August 4, 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that due to the continued delay in awarding new Recovery Auditor contracts, the CMS is initiating contract modifications to the current Recovery Auditor contracts to allow the Recovery Auditors to restart some reviews. Most reviews will be done on an automated basis, but a limited number will be complex reviews of topics selected by CMS.
Work continues on the procurement process for the four Part A / Part B Regions and the national DMEPOS/HH&H Region. The CMS remains hopeful that the new round of Recovery Auditor contracts will be awarded this year.
