Individuals with intellectual disability or a related condition have special protections under state and federal law to ensure that long-term services and supports are provided in the right setting to meet their individual needs.
KEPRO was awarded a contract from the Agency for Persons with Disabilities to complete PASRR Level II evaluations and determinations for individuals with an intellectual disability or a related condition. KEPRO’s Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) program supports and aligns with federal and state obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure that these individuals are served in the least restrictive setting.
When nursing home level of care is found to be needed, then the program will work to ensure that the patient’s disability needs are met. This means providing recommendations on rehabilitative services or Specialized Services and tracking the progress of the patient to make amendments ensuring that changing needs are always addressed.
In addition to providing indirect care to Floridians, the Florida PASRR Program supports stakeholders and providers through an online provider portal that allows for simple and secure submissions; trainings to assist in their roles; and technical assistance and one on one consultations.
