Episode 24: The Value of PEPPER

Just over half of hospice organizations have downloaded their current Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER). Providers who aren't accessing their report are missing vital information on quality and performance and red flags that regulators are looking at. NHPCO's team shares their concerns and Judi and Carol discuss the opportunities in this underused but incredibly valuable resource.


Episode 23: Routine Home Care

Concluding our series on the four levels of required care with Judi and Jennifer discussing the provision of routine home care. This is the majority of care that is provided in hospice and there are still many questions providers have or components they are unsure about. Also, at the top of the episode, Judi also lets listeners know about the waiver CMS has enacted for providers in Texas and Louisiana.
