PASRR Level I Information

KEPRO contracts with AHCA to serve as the Florida PASRR Level I and Level II vendor. For individuals residing in a community setting who do not have access to hospital or nursing home services, KEPRO has been delegated by AHCA to complete an onsite PASRR Level I screening. These screenings will be completed within two business days.

According to state regulation, nursing facilities and hospitals in Florida are also delegated to complete PASRR Level I screenings. Level I screeners must be an MSW, LCSW, LMHC, RN, ARNP, a psychologist, or a physician. If the PASRR Level I outcome is positive (indicating a possible serious mental illness, intellectual disability, or a related condition) then a PASRR Level II evaluation and determination must be completed prior to a nursing home admission.

According to CFR 42-§483.102 and 59G-1.040, F.A.C., a PASRR Level I screen must be completed prior to admission for all applicants to a Medicaid-certified nursing facility, regardless of the payer source.
