RD300 - Functional Eligibility Screenings Training Initiatives – August 1, 2018

Executive Summary:

The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) has made significant progress toward improving the functional screening process for long-term services and supports. The Department continues its study of screenings and has streamlined the fields required for the screening in electronic preadmission screening (ePAS).  An automated, competency-based training and certification process is under development. The Department plans to monitor the number of screeners trained and certified once the training and certification process is in place. Finally, DMAS continues its participation in the public engagement process with meetings with affected stakeholders.
