On September 1, 2019, Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) will transition to eQHealth Solutions. The purpose of the transition to eQHealth Solutions is to develop, coordinate, and perform a more efficient and effective streamlined review and evaluation process for the PASRR program. We will begin taking eQSuite® Access forms Thursday, August 29, 2019, for the PASRR program.
The PASRR program requires pre-screening or reviewing of all clients who apply to or reside in a Medicaid certified nursing facility regardless of the source of payment for the nursing facility services or The individual's or resident's diagnosis. PASRR consists of two elements:
- PASRR Level I Identification Screening: The purpose of the PASRR Level I Identification screening is to identify for further review all those clients seeking nursing facility admission, for whom it appears a diagnosis of mental illness or intellectual or developmental disability is likely.
- PASRR Level II Evaluation: The purpose of the PASRR Level II evaluation is to evaluate and determine whether nursing facility services are needed, whether an individual has mental illness or intellectual or developmental disability and whether specialized mental health or intellectual or developmental disability services are needed. After admission to a nursing facility, Level II Evaluation is also required promptly following any significant change in the resident's condition.
