The Pre-Admission Screening Resident Review (PASRR) unit determines whether or not an individual who has an active diagnosis of Mental Illness (MI) or Intellectual/Developmental Disability (ID/DD) meets the criteria for admission to a nursing facility and may require specialized services. PASRR is required for all persons seeking admission to Medicaid certified nursing facilities, regardless of whether their stay at the nursing facility will be paid for by Medicaid, Medicare or with other resources. No individual shall be admitted to a Medicaid certified nursing facility without a completed PASRR screen.
The Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Client Services is pleased to announce that Keystone Peer Review Organization, Inc (KEPRO) has been awarded the contract for Pre-admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) and Nursing Facility Level of Care Services. KEPRO will begin effective November 1, 2016.
