Hi Mary — Please take a look at our PASRR Resources page. We regularly update it with new information. Also, be sure to sign up for the October and December PASRR training webinars from Texas HHSC.
in a medicare licensed only pps hostpital swingbed in texas, are we required to do or receive a PASRR
Hi Robin — Per Texas HHS: “PASRR requirements do NOT apply to stand-alone skilled nursing facilities, Medicare swing bed facilities or licensed-only nursing facilities. In brief, if the facility is not certified to provide care to any residents on Medicaid, the PASRR provisions do NOT apply.”
If our facility does not have Simple, where are the instructions for entering the CMWC request into TMHP?
Hi Joan — You will need to contact TMHP for assistance at 800-626-4117.
