CMS is taking measures to free up the attention of providers as they respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To this end, the planned April 6, 2020, release of the Q4FY19 PEPPERs for CAHs, LTACHs, IPFs, IRFs, hospices, and SNFs has been delayed. As more information becomes available, the PEPPER Team will notify providers about the rescheduled release date for the Q4FY19 PEPPERs.
