The 30th Anniversary of PASRR

A PDF copy of the presentation slides is available at the bottom of the page.

A look at PASRR’s past and its future. Since the passage of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987, over thirty years ago, PASRR has become a critical part of the health care continuum and a driver of excellence in person-centered practices and individualized plans of care. This webinar will look back at pivotal moments in PASRR’s history, look at how PASRR implementation has changed over time, and consider important changes going forward. From practices to lessons learned to industry standards, states have played a major role in PASRR’s continuing success.
