May 1 is the final day that all hospitals can submit data to the quarterly RACTrac survey. Hospitals are asked to complete the survey even if they did not experience recovery audit contractor activity during the first quarter of this year. The free web-based survey helps AHA measure the impact of Medicare's RAC program on hospitals and advocate for needed changes. For more information on the RACTrac initiative, visit To register for the survey or for technical assistance, contact RACTrac support at (888) 722-8712 or
