Kepro to Provide Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) Level I Screenings and Level II Evaluations and Determinations to the State of Florida

NASHVILLE, TN– KEPRO announced that the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) has awarded KEPRO the opportunity to provide PASRR Level I Screenings, Level II Evaluations and Determinations, and Resident Reviews to the state of Florida. 

KEPRO contracts with AHCA to serve as the Florida Preadmission Services and Resident Review (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 onsite PASRR Level I screenings.

“We are thrilled to be providing Level I screenings and resident reviews to help serve the citizens of Florida,” said KEPRO CEO Joel Portice. “KEPRO’s growth in providing services to the intellectual and developmental disabilities population has made a significant impact on the people we serve.”

According to state regulations, Medicaid-certified nursing facilities and hospitals in Florida are delegated to complete PASRR Level I screenings. 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.

KEPRO’s PASRR program provides protections that align with federal and state laws under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure that anyone with a serious mental illness, intellectual disability, or a related condition is served in the least restrictive setting. KEPRO partners with hospitals and nursing homes throughout the state of Florida to provide Level I screenings, as well as resident reviews when there has been a significant change in a resident’s condition.
