PASRR INFORMATION

About PASRR
Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) is a powerful and effective program established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure that persons with serious mental illness, intellectual, and/or developmental disabilities are placed in the least restrictive setting and receive recommended interventions to improve their quality of life. More recently, the PASRR program has emerged as one of the key methods and most effective tools for identifying persons with these conditions and providing the needed care and services.

PASRR has wide-ranging statewide and national impact, affecting hospitals, nursing facilities, other providers, caregivers, and family members.  PASRR assessment outcomes can influence numerous other long-term care services, including Waiver programs, IMD monitoring, housing, funding, and other essential services and initiatives.
