Attention Texas providers:
Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) has informed us that the new Form 1012 for will be available for use effective Sept. 24, 2018. Nursing Facilities that discover a mental illness diagnosis for an individual in their facility, when the current PASRR Level 1 screening is negative for MI, must use Form 1012 from Sept. 24 forward.
What is Form 1012?
Form 1012 assists Nursing Facilities (NF) in determining if a previously negative Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) Level I (PL1) Screening form, that has already been submitted to the Long Term Care (LTC) Portal, needs to be changed to a positive PL1 for Mental Illness (MI). This form confirms if the individual meets the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) definition of MI, if there is a dementia diagnosis and if the individual’s dementia is the primary diagnosis. This form also provides NFs documentation for the medical record as to why a new positive PL1 was not completed.
How can I learn about Form 1012?
Training for this form was provided on Aug. 29, 2018 by via an HHS webinar hosted by SimpleLTC. If you missed the webinar, you can watch it on-demand and download the slides at the link below:
