MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 2, 2020 10:09 AM
From: Representative Seth M. Grove
To: All House members
Subject: Recovery Audits
 
Recovery Audits or Recovery Audits Contracts (RACs) were originally developed by retail businesses in the 1970's to detect unpaid invoices, duplicate payments, discounts and allowances not received, and general overpayments. 

This practice has since been adopted by the federal government and state governments, including Pennsylvania under our Medicaid program.  This legislation directs of the Governor's Office of the Budget to expand RACs to any program within state government which expends over $50 million.

RACS have been a succuessful and proven tool to protect taxpayer dollars, prevent fraud, and uncover government waste.

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.



Introduced as HB39
