Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review Program

Purpose of the Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (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.
