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.

CARES Act

Please note: Policy guidance cited in published CBRs and PEPPERs are based on non-public health emergency Medicare rules. Please check with your Medicare Administrative Contractor to determine if a particular service or supply is impacted by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act, published in March 2020, addresses Medicare flexibilities related to the COVID-19 crisis.
