Nursing Home Pre-Admission Review
Besides being a state and federal requirement for anyone thinking about entering a Medicaid-certified nursing facility, Pre-Admission Reviews are an important part of the long-term care planning process. They help people understand all their options for long-term care, options that may include home and community-based services and assisted living. At Council on Aging, our Pre-Admission Review Team (Pre-Ad) conducts more than 11,000 reviews each year.

Special Notice - Council on Aging’s 2019 Forum on Aging is March 12-13. We have designed a special workshop for staff at nursing facilities and hospitals who have a hand in PASRR and LOC processes at their respective facilities. The workshop – Preadmission and Resident Review and Level of Care Basics – will be moderated by a team of professionals from the Ohio Department of Medicaid. The workshop is offered in the afternoon on the first day of the conference. Registration is required. Click here for more information about the conference and registration.
