Welcome to PEPPER Resources

PEPPERresources.org is the official site for information, training and support related to the Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER).

PEPPER provides provider-specific Medicare data statistics for discharges/services vulnerable to improper payments. PEPPER can support a hospital or facility’s compliance efforts by identifying where it is an outlier for these risk areas. This data can help identify both potential overpayments as well as potential underpayments.
