It is "totally wrong" for providers to let their PEPPERs fall into the hands of outside vendors, a leading long-term care coding and payment expert warned a national audience on Tuesday.
Providers will learn how the government's PEPPER reports are connected to their facilities' health during a June 3 McKnight's Super Tuesday webcast. Featured speaker Leah Klusch, the executive director of the Alliance Training Center, will help attendees realize how these reports can affect their payments and affect operations.
Have you received your provider-specific PEPPER report yet? The Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) were mailed on August 30 and have been slowly arriving at skilled nursing facilities throughout the country.
