The Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) is released each year in April. The Hospice PEPPER report can play an important part in shaping your internal compliance program. In a year of increased scrutiny across post-acute settings, accessing and understanding your PEPPER report can not only help you compare your organization to others but also help you identify risks and vulnerabilities to address now and avoid an audit problem later.
