OBRA - Trends in Geriatric Mental Health
Friday, January 27, 2023 | 1:00 - 2:00pm
The Office of Specialized Nursing Homes - OBRA Programs was originally established in response to the provisions of the federal Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1987, which amended the Medicaid program requirements for all nursing facilities. Its primary function has been to assure the implementation of those provisions of Preadmission Screening and Annual Review (PASRR) which address the relationship of nursing facilities to persons who are seriously mentally ill and/or have an intellectual/developmental disability (ID/DD).
In this webinar, we will discuss the impact COVID is having on those diagnosed with mental illness and/or intellectual disabilities, demographic changes, including age, severity of mental health and related issues as well as the impact on placement and care.
