In the December 2013 issue of The O&P EDGE, I
wrote a Perspective article, “A Call to Action,” in which I encouraged others in the O&P profession to
get actively involved in efforts to advocate for change
with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
(CMS) regarding Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC)
lower-limb prosthetic claim audits, specifically those
based on a lack of or inadequate physician documentation.
In that column, I suggested several steps that O&P
professionals might take, including participation in a
CMS documentation requirements survey.
