Tennessee PASRR

Tools and Resources


Maximus performs Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) Level I screens and Level II evaluations on individuals who are applying to or residing in Medicaid-certified nursing homes. This federally mandated assessment process is used to determine whether the nursing home is the appropriate placement for individuals with mental illness, intellectual disabilities or developmental disabilities. PASRR functions as an essential method to help match individuals with the care and services they need. Ascend also performs nursing facility Level of Care Determinations for all Level II evaluations.
