Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) Manual is Available

February 5, 2013

The Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) program seeks to ensure that individuals who are otherwise eligible for care in a nursing facility (NF) and who also have a mental illness, intellectual disability, or other related condition, receive the additional care necessary (specialized services) to meet their needs. A PASRR manual is now available on the MaineCare Provider Resources webpage under “Provider Manuals and Guides” for more information and guidance. This manual is published under the authority of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). DHHS acts as the State’s Medicaid agency and authority for mental health and intellectual disabilities.
