Hospice Medical Review & PEPPER

This session will take agencies through the winding road of Medicare scrutiny.  While billing the Medicare benefit and getting paid relatively easy, there is always a risk of things being reviewed at some point and what can you do to avoid denials.  Participants will be able to define the different levels of medical review and outline the structure of how to respond to any level of medical review that may occur.  This session will also discuss PEPPER reports and other data analysis that agencies will need to review to ensure that their risk from medical review is limited.  Don’t be caught in the comfortable position of believing that everything is okay.  Attendees will take away information that will assist in assuring that your hospice truly is accurately documenting.

  • Discuss the top 5 denial reasons for medical review and the documentation requirements to avoid those denials

Home Health Medical Review & PEPPER

PEPPER Reports have swiftly become the forefront of everyone’s concern when it comes to Home Health Medicare Medical Review.  The PEPPER which is data that is gathered strictly from the from processed claims information, carries a very heavy weight in the decision – to Medically Review an agency or NOT.  Many of the targets calculated within the PEPPER give home health agencies detail insight into the claims’ details that may have been overlooked causing issue with the target calculations.  Home Health Agencies should be heightened aware that everyone they do not want to review their PEPPER data, indeed are!  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.  With the switch to PDGM there has been an update to PEPPER Targets….don’t miss the update.
