Nursing Facility Program

Welcome to the WV Nursing Facility Program. The Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) requires all individuals being placed in a nursing facility or transferring between facilities, to have a medical necessity assessment completed, submitted, and reviewed in accordance with BMS policy. BMS utilizes the Pre‐Admission Screening (PAS) assessment instrument, PAS‐2000, as the basis for conducting the medical necessity review. Kepro conducts Nursing Facility/PASRR reviews for BMS. This effort has helped to ensure that individuals seeking placement in a nursing facility meet BMS’s medical eligibility requirements for this level of care as well as whether an alternative placement is appropriate. A Kepro nurse reviews submitted requests and determines medical eligibility for a nursing facility as well as screens for the need for a Level 2 evaluation.

Atrezzo for Nursing Facility Services
