Improper payments made by federal agencies cost taxpayers $141 billion last year. Medicare had the highest level of improper payments, totaling $51.9 billion.
Since 2010, the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program has successfully recouped $12.3 billion in improper payments made to Medicare providers and suppliers. RACs have also helped to expose vulnerabilities in the Medicare billing system, identifying patterns that suggest systemic fraud.
However, bowing to special interest pressure, Congress has suspended almost all RAC audits. Congress must stop giving unscrupulous Medicare providers and suppliers a free ride – at taxpayer expense!
Tell your U.S. Senators and Representative today to immediately reinstate the proven-successful RAC program that has saved taxpayers billions of dollars by eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse.
