SNF PEPPER Stats Now Available

Dianne De La Mare

The skilled nursing facility (SNF) Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) summarizing statistics for FYs 2012-2014 is now available through the PEPPER Resources Portal. To date, 51 percent of all SNFs have retrieved this important data. For more information on accessing your PEPPER, see the Distribution page. Recorded PEPPER training sessions also are available on the SNF Training and Resources page at PEPPERresources.org, along with the updated SNF PEPPER User’s Guide. Join the email list at PEPPERresources.org to receive notifications of upcoming training opportunities and report distribution.

By way of background, PEPPER is a comparative billing report summarizing Medicare claims data statistics for areas at risk for improper Medicare payments. It is distributed by TMF® Health Quality Institute under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Visit PEPPERresources.org to access more information on PEPPER.
