Hanger, Austin, Texas, has announced that it has launched a free, interactive, online resource that clarifies and streamlines the process of responding to Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) audits. The Hanger RAC Navigation Tool is available to all O&P providers at www.hanger.com/RAC. The tool provides interactive mapping of the audit process, recommended guidelines, and downloadable, standardized documents.
“The administrative burden of the RAC audits continues to strain the O&P industry, often shifting valuable time and resources away from what’s most important-patient care and customer service,” said Vinit Asar, president and CEO of Hanger. “[I]t is Hanger’s responsibility to help the industry navigate regulatory and legislative headwinds and elevate O&P in the healthcare space.”
