Preadmission screening for nursing facility services. Eliminates a requirement that physicians serving as members of screening teams for community-based long-term care services as defined in the state plan for medical assistance be an employee of the Department of Health or the local department of social services; eliminates the requirement that the Department of Medical Assistance Services (the Department) contract with an acute care hospital for institutional screenings for long-term care services as defined in the state plan for medical assistance, so that the Department may but is not required to contract with acute care hospitals for such screenings; and allows the Department to contract with one or more vendors to receive, conduct, track, and monitor requests for all community-based and institutional long-term care screenings. The bill also requires the Board of Medical Assistance Services to promulgate regulations to implement the bill's provisions within 280 days and allows the Board to implement changes necessary to implement the bill's provisions upon its passage and prior to the promulgation of regulations.
