Updated 1135 Waiver information related to Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR)

On April 21, 2020, CMS issued a COVID-19 Emergency Declaration Blanket Waivers for Health Care Providers, which extends the PASRR approval through the end of the emergency declaration.

Effective April 2, 2020 and through the end of the Federal Emergency Declaration, certified Skilled Nursing Facilities and Intermediate Care Facilities will continue to follow the process outlined in the PASRR 1135 Waiver Implementation 4-22-20 for new admissions into Medicaid-certified beds.
