This webinar will explore the Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) content and what it reveals about your hospice.  PEPPER focuses on numerous target areas, which reveal a hospice’s strengths and weaknesses.  Medicare reviewers tend to lean on this information when evaluating the possibility of inappropriate billing practices.  Incredibly, less than 50% of US hospices have ever opened and reviewed their PEPPER!  Don’t be a part of that statistic.  This webinar will review the target areas, best practices, and how to evaluate your scores to determine problem areas.  Learn the ins and outs of PEPPER and how to evaluate the data.
