Partial Hospital PEPPERS Released in Two Formats

Two different methods are being used to distribute the fiscal year 2013 fourth quarter Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Reports (PEPPER) for partial hospital programs (PHPs). PHPs administered through short-term acute care hospitals or inpatient psychiatric facilities should have received their PEPPER electronically via QualityNet Exchange in mid-April; for more information, see the PEPPER Distribution website. PHPs administered through community mental health centers can now download their reports through the secure PEPPER access site. The reports will be available to download for approximately one year. In addition, reports are now available only electronically and are no longer being mailed. More information is available from the PHP training and resources web page. For assistance, contact the PEPPER Help Desk.
