Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR)


Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) is a deferral requirement to help ensure that individuals are not inappropriately placed in nursing homes for long term care. PASRR requires that 1) all applicants to Medicaid certified nursing facilities be evaluated for mental illness and/or intellectual disability; 2) be offered the most appropriate setting for their needs (in the community, a nursing facility, or acute care settings) ; and 3) receive the services they need in those settings.
