RACâ€™s are limited to a 3 year look back. This means that overpayments or records requests cannot be made more than 3 years following the date the claim was initially paid. The RAC program will begin with claims paid on or after October 1, 2007. This begin date will be for all states. The actual start date for a RAC in a state will not change this date. As time passes, the RAC may look back 3 years, but the claim paid date may never be earlier than October 1, 2007.
