A new release of the Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) is now available for skilled nursing homes. PEPPERs will no longer be mailed to providers who previously received their PEPPERs by mail. They will now be able to access them through a secure website portal, http://pepperresources.org/PEPPER/SecurePEPPERAccess.aspx.
Those providers who have been receiving their PEPPERs through QualityNet will continue to do so. The Chief Executive Officer, President, or Administrator of the provider can obtain their PEPPER. Information on accessing and downloading the PEPPER is available in the Secure PEPPER Access Guide.
Training and Resources are available on the website: www.pepperresources.org/TrainingResources/SkilledNursingFacilities.aspx.
