Updated SNF PEPPER Retrieval Maps Now Available

TMF Health Quality Institute, as directed by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has just updated the maps that display the Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) retrieval rate for SNF PEPPERs. These maps are updated monthly. Recall that PEPPER is an educational tool that summarizes provider-specific data statistics for Medicare services that may be at risk for improper payments (e.g., for SNFs, this data focuses on RUGs). Providers are encouraged to use this data to support internal auditing and monitoring activities. For more information visit PEPPERresources.org
