If you are getting divorced, may be seeking support from your friends and family. Emotional support from friends and family can help you cope, but it’s better if you can have your conversations away from social media. People are now accustomed to posting details of their lives online, but their posts can also have an effect on divorce proceedings. That’s why it’s better to avoid using social media for conversations about divorce unless you have to.

You will be in a better position to respond appropriately to an investigation by working with an attorney.
If the billing practices of your health care group or practice have been scrutinized by the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program, you may be able to appeal if you disagree with the determinations. However, you should not delay in acting. The timeline for appealing a RAC determination is short.
According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the deadline to file an appeal at the first level is 120 days. The first level of appeal involves redetermination by a Medicare carrier, fiscal intermediary or a Medicare Administrative Contractor. The remaining four levels of appeal also have strict deadlines.
If your health care practice is subject to a RAC appeal, do not delay. Contact an experienced health care attorney.
