Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID)

Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR)

Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) is a process that ensures that an individual is appropriate for nursing facility placement and aids in determining whether an individual with an indication of Mental Illness, Intellectual Disability and/or a related condition could benefit from specialized or rehabilitative services. The screenings and resident reviews are conducted by the DOM PASRR Contractor and/or the Department of Mental Health.
