Have you accessed your PEPPER?
PEPPER is a Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report and summarizes Medicare claims data in areas that may be at risk for improper payments. PEPPER cannot identify improper Medicare payments, but summarizes information and identifies potential SNF Target Areas.
Providers are encouraged to access their PEPPER reports to identify potential problem areas; however, you are not required to use PEPPER. Be aware that the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) is reporting the number of facilities who access their reports per state. The recently reported data reflects the PEPPER release completed April 9, 2018. You may access the SNF data per state by clicking this link: Map of Q4FY17 SNF PEPPER retrievals by state.
If you need help obtaining your report or have questions related to PEPPER, visit the PEPPER Help Desk to request assistance.
