We are the National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP), comprised of caring professionals who partner together to address quality of care for individuals with mental illness or intellectual/developmental disabilities who apply for admission or continued residence in nursing facilities. We are the governmental and non-governmental professionals who develop, implement, and educate about the mission of PASRR. We are NAPP, and through Preadmission Screening and Resident Review, we are improving individualized care.

The National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP) is a 501c3 non-profit educational organization dedicated to advancing the profession of individuals and organizations working to implement the federally mandated Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) Programs.

PASRR ensures that individuals are placed in nursing facilities only when necessary and remain there for as short a time frame as possible. PASRR requires that all applicants to a Medicaid-certified nursing facility 1) be evaluated for serious mental illness (SMI) and/or intellectual/developmental disability (IDD); 2) be offered the opportunity to reside in a nursing facility if/when they meet the State’s level of care requirements or divert/transfer to a more appropriate setting and 3) have services identified that each individual may need in order to optimize quality of life in the least restrictive, most integrated setting appropriate to their unique needs and choices.
