CMS Announces Webinar on Proposed Changes to Preadmission Screening and Resident Review Process

Share this page

Because the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) regulations surrounding the Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) process include screening for intellectual / developmental disabilities, ANCOR is monitoring proposed changes to the regulations. CMS announced a webinar to explain the proposal, which will be held on March 11 from 2pm to 3:30pm EST.

As CMS announced:

“This presentation will identify key changes to Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) requirements proposed in the recently-released Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. PASRR is a statutory requirement that states screen all applicants to and residents of Medicaid-certified nursing homes for mental illness and intellectual disability and, when possible, divert or transition these individuals to community placements. The presentation will provide a basic overview of the PASRR statutory requirements and highlight proposed regulatory changes that support community integration. Presenters will be Centers for Medicaid & CHIP Services (CMCS) staff from the Division of Long Term Supports and Services (DLTSS), including Ralph F. Lollar, Division Director; George Failla, Deputy Division Director; and Anne Blackfield, PASRR Subject Matter Expert. Technical support will be given by IBM Watson Health, which provides PASRR-related technical assistance to states via the PASRR Technical Assistance Center.

Date & Time: Wednesday March 11, 2020 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST
