RD306 - Functional Eligibility Screenings Training Initiatives – August 1, 2019
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 developed and implemented an automated, module based competency training and certification program, which all current Screeners must complete with a passing score of 80% by July 1, 2019. The training is also available to any “guest" who may review the training and are not Screeners. As of May 8, 2019, 679 individuals have registered for the on-line modular training.
