Comprehensive Insights to Navigate TPE Reviews

Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) may face two distinct types of Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) reviews – the Traditional TPE and the SNF 5-Claim Probe and Educate Review. Understanding the differences between these reviews and knowing how to respond to additional documentation requests is crucial for facility staff. The Targeted Probe and Educate Review is an on-demand workshop that offers comprehensive insights into both review processes, detailing what to expect and how to navigate them effectively. You will learn best practices and how to avoid common pitfalls, plus gain access to valuable resources including a TPE Quick Guide PDF.

Following this on-demand workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the difference between the traditional TPE and the SNF 5-Claim Probe and Educate Review
  • Develop an effective strategy to gather documentation needed to support the HIPPS code billed for each of the reviewed claims
  • Recognize common pitfalls and implement best practices for responding to TPE reviews
  • Utilize appropriate resources to improve the facility team’s understanding of the review process
