The purpose of this Information Bulletin is to inform all interested parties of a change in the Developmental Disabilities (DD) Pre-Admission Screening (PAS) Manual regarding the timeliness of medical histories.
Information Bulletin DD.14.039: Pre-Admission Screening Manual Revisions - Required Assessments announced changes to the DD PAS Manual regarding required assessments. The changes outlined in that Bulletin are intended to streamline the eligibility assessment process for individuals seeking new or different developmental disabilities Medicaid services. One of the modifications changed the timeliness of physicals from 30 days to one year. Independent Service Coordination agencies, responsible for completing the eligibility assessments, have since requested that the same time frame be applied to medical histories. The Division supports this requested change, with some limitations.
The DD PAS Manual is modified in Chapter 200.50, Section C., first paragraph, as follows:
