Hospice PEPPER - What Does Your Update Look Like? 

July 13, 2021 11:30AM - 1:00PM EST 

This session will take agencies through the winding road of Medicare scrutiny. While billing the Medicare benefit and getting paid relatively easy, there is always a risk of things being reviewed at some point and what can you do to avoid denials. This session will discuss PEPPER reports and other data analysis that agencies will need to review to ensure that their risk from medical review is limited. Don’t be caught in the comfortable position of believing that everything is okay. Attendees will take away information that will assist in assuring that your hospice truly is accurately documenting.
 
Learning Objectives:

Outline the targets that are calculated on the PEPPER Reports

Detail the targets and other data from the PEPPER reports that is used to evaluate a hospice’s performance

Detail the top reasons hospices are targeted for medical review that correlate to the PEPPER
