TMF will conduct this Web-based training session for HHAs reviewing information on PEPPER, how you can obtain your PEPPER and use it to support auditing and monitoring efforts. The session has been scheduled for Thursday, July 28 at 1:00 p.m. CDT.

Register for the training at https://tmfpepper.webex.com/mw3100/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=tmfpepper&service=6. Because registration is limited to 1,000 sites, HHAs are encouraged to coordinate internally to prevent duplicate registrations and to allow as many HHAs to participate as possible.
