PEPPER Resources Portal

Please complete the following fields to access your PEPPER. A provider’s PEPPER is only available to
that individual provider’s Chief Executive Officer, President, Administrator, Compliance Officer,
or Quality Assurance/Performance Improvement Officer.
The PEPPER Team is committed to ensuring and maintaining the confidentiality of each provider’s PEPPER.
Likewise, all recipients of PEPPER are expected to maintain and safeguard the confidentiality of privileged data or information.


Please enter your 6-digit CMS Certification Number
(also referred to as provider number or PTAN).

Depending on your provider type, you will need to enter one of the following two types of information:
  • A validation code, which is emailed to your facility contact (i.e., your security administrator or Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System [PECOS] contact)
  • Either a patient control number or a medical record number (found at form locators 03a or 03b on the UB-04 claim form) from a claim of a traditional Medicare Fee-for-Service beneficiary who received services during the specified time period.
For detailed instructions, please click here.

Some accounts may be temporarily unavailable.
Maintenance will conclude by 6pm CT.

If a provider does not have a management position with any of these titles, the person who has the authority to make decisions on behalf of the organization should check the box for the title that best describes their position.
