What's New With Long-Term Services & Supports

Effective December 1st, there is a new process for submitting a Level I Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR).

Ascend, a MAXIMUS Company, is the state's PASRR vendor, and began processing Level I screens on that date. Effective December 1st, providers should no longer utilize TPAES when submitting a PASRR Level I screen. Providers should now utilize Ascend’s web based screening system.  For more information on this process change visit Ascend’s website: https://www.ascendami.com/ami/Providers/YourState/TennesseePASRRUserTools.aspx
