NO PEPPER? NO PROBLEM! Mitigating Payment-Related Scrutiny During PEPPER Pause


About This Webinar

The Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) is the best tool for hospices to identify potential areas of payment vulnerability and mitigate CMS contractor audit risk. With CMS’ recent pause in releasing the FY2023 PEPPER Report, hospice providers must now rely on other measures to identify and mitigate payment-related risk since CMS contractor audits are hospice providers’ greatest financial risk.

This session includes: 

  • An explanation of the most important PEPPER target areas to mitigate audit risk
  • Strategies to duplicate PEPPER data using the hospice’s electronic medical record and other data
  • A discussion of risk-mitigation strategies to decrease future payment-related audit risk
