Does Your Hospice Agency PEPPER? You Should!
The PEPPER is a free report summarizing three years of a Hospice Agency’s (HA) Medicare billing practices, comparing them with other HAs for eleven areas at risk for improper Medicare payments. Are your agency’s statistics at or above the 80th percentile and so identified as an “outlier” and seen as a risk for improper Medicare payments?
Whether the PEPPER reports are used in RAC audits, CMS Probe & Educate audits or by the OIG Recovery Auditors or just by your agency to learn if you are an outlier in a number of critical areas – CMS is urging your agency to access and utilize the reports to enhance your compliance. Join CMS contractor Kimberly Hrehor, MHA, RHIA, CHC, PMP, Director at the TMF Health Quality Institute in a 60 minute Webinar on all things PEPPER!
This webinar will cover:
The purpose of PEPPER
Hospice target areas and why they are included in the PEPPER
How to access your Hospice PEPPER
What the data could mean
How you can use the data in your agency self-assessment and internal audits
Who else accesses PEPPER data and how it may be used
What's next for PEPPER & wrap-up
See Program for Details
