Hospital and nursing facilities physician’s signature notification

Effective Jan. 1, 2016, Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) will no longer require the physician’s certification, electronic or hardcopy signature to confirm clinical eligibility of a nursing facility resident. Applicable sections of Mississippi Administrative Code Title 23 are being revised to reflect these changes for Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review
(PASRR), formerly known as the Pre-Admission Screening (PAS).

The following sections will be included in this update:

  • Part 303, Chapter 1, Rule 1.2: Level I Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review, and
  • Part 207, Chapter 1: Long Term Care Pre-Admission Screening , Rule 1.1: Clinical Eligibility Determination
