About PEPPER

PEPPER is an educational tool that summarizes provider-specific data statistics for Medicare services that may be at risk for improper payments. Providers can use the data to support internal auditing and monitoring activities. Visit the SNF “Training and Resources” page on the PEPPER website to access updated resources for using PEPPER, including recorded web-based training sessions, a sample SNF PEPPER, and the current SNF PEPPER User’s Guide. PEPPER is developed under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) by RELI Group, along with its partners TMF® Health Quality Institute and CGS.
