Promoting and protecting the health and safety of all Idahoans


PASRR Level I, Abbreviated Level II and Level II is suspended for nursing facility
admissions for 30 days starting April 7, 2020 and ends when emergency declarations are lifted. 

PASRR Level I screens are not required to be completed or submitted to the Bureau of Long Term Care prior to admission to a nursing facility.

Nursing facilities are responsible for submitting Level I screens within 30 days of admission. Failure to submit the Level I screen within 30 days may result in recoupment of claims paid for ineligible bed days.


Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) is federally mandated for all individuals, regardless of payment source, admitting to a Medicaid nursing facility. The PASRR screens for serious mental illness (SMI) and intellectual/developmental disability or related condition (ID/RC). The goal of PASRR is to prevent the warehousing of individuals with SMI and/or ID/RC in nursing facilities by ensuring nursing facility placement is appropriate. If nursing facility placement is appropriate, and the individual would benefit, specialized services or specialized rehabilitative services are offered and provided. 

PASRR Level I (87) screenings are completed in the order they are received, Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm. Most Level I (87) screenings submitted for review are completed on the same business day unless the Level I (87) is received after 3:30pm or a full Level II (face to face evaluation) is required. Please do not indicate ‘urgent’ or ‘ASAP’ on the Level I (87) or any supporting documentation.

Level I (87) completed forms should be faxed to the region in which the participant resides or is currently hospitalized. All questions regarding status updates on pending PASRRs should be directed to the same region in which the Level I (87) was originally faxed.
