F-01012: Reimbursement Request for a PASRR Level I Screen

Medicaid Handbook Topic #3189: Specialized Services

Nursing homes are also eligible for a $9.00 per member, per day supplement to the nursing home's daily rate for members with a serious mental illness who have been determined by the PASRR to require specialized services. Payments are made quarterly and are reflected on the nursing home's RA.

This supplemental reimbursement is available for members who are not developmentally disabled and only for those days on which the member is in the facility and receiving specialized services, so therapeutic and hospital bed hold days do not qualify. There is no supplement to the daily rate for the developmentally disabled members because of the funding sources for specialized services, including the Medicaid nursing home formula.
