Paper Forms for Nursing Facility PASRR Specialized Services No Longer Accepted Effective June 23, 2017


Effective June 23, 2017, paper forms for Nursing Facility (NF) Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) specialized services authorization requests will no longer be accepted. These forms include Form 1017 (Specialized Services/Durable Medical Equipment Authorization Request), Form 1018 (Specialized Services Customized Manual Wheelchair Authorization Request), and Form 2465 (Specialized Services Request for Physical, Occupational, or Speech Therapy).

As the implementation date for this change approaches, NFs must ensure their access to the LTC Online Portal is current and all necessary users have active User IDs and passwords.

Functionality will be provided to support Third Party Vendor (TPV) submission of this new form using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI); however, if your TPV does not provide NFSS request form functionality, it is imperative that your staff be prepared to submit and access the NFSS request forms directly on the LTC Online Portal.
