The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has withdrawn its request for quotes for the next round of recovery audit contractor contracts, the agency announced July 10. The agency plans to update its Statement of Work for the RAC program and release requests for proposals soon. In the meantime, CMS says current RACs will continue auditing through at least Dec. 31. In March, the U.S Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled CMS’s proposed new contracts for Medicare RACs violate contracting requirements under the Federal Acquisition Regulations. In May, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims issued an injunction that prohibits CMS from proceeding with contracts under its original requests for quotation.
