CMS believes results of the Home Health Probe and Educate program have been favorable based on the decrease in claim errors after providers received education. It is now moving from a broad Probe and Educate program to a more targeted one. The Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) is a comparative data report that summarizes a single provider’s Medicare claims data statistics in areas identified as at risk for improper Medicare payments, such as poor clinical and Medicare coverage documentation. To develop the HHA PEPPER, Medicare claims data for all HHAs in the nation were analyzed to identify “target areas” which could be at risk for improper Medicare payment. In this webinar, Anthony Cutrona and Heidi Kocher will discuss details of these programs and what steps take to navigate and utilize them. This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow.
