PEPPER Reports are the primary source of data used to determine if a Hospice will subject to Medicare Medical Review.  The PEPPER, which is data that is gathered strictly from the from processed claims information, carries a very heavy weight in this decision.  Many of the targets calculated within the PEPPER give hospices detail insight into the claims’ details that may have been overlooking causing issue with the target calculations.  Hospices should be heightened aware of the impact of their PEPPER data!  This session will take you through key elements in the PEPPER targets and how to review the data in your organization to determine how they can be improved, if needed. All new elements implemented with the April 2023 release will be reviewed.
