OBRA - Nursing Facility Pre-Admission Screening and Annual Resident Review Program (PASARR):

A Federal regulation called the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA), mandates that all individuals who are entering Medicaid/Medicare funded nursing facilities must receive a comprehensive mental health assessment if they are identified as having a serious mental illness or developmental disability. Senior Services OBRA Program completes these assessments for all individuals who meet these criteria in Kalamazoo County.

A pre-admission assessment is performed before an individual enters a nursing facility, and an annual resident review is completed thereafter.  The purpose of these assessments is to verify medical necessity for a nursing facility, and more importantly, to make mental health recommendations which will assist the facility in providing necessary mental health support and services.
