Got data? The Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report, or PEPPER, is a free report that summarizes a provider’s Medicare claims data statistics and provides comparative data with the state, jurisdiction and nation. Providers can review the PEPPER to evaluate their statistics and determine whether they should take any actions, such as reviewing records to ensure the care provided was necessary and that documentation supports the diagnosis codes and services billed. Learn all about PEPPER and how it can work for you.
Attendees will discover:
- What is PEPPER
- Why providers receive PEPPER
- PEPPER Target Areas
- Obtaining your PEPPER
- Using PEPPER to improve data quality
