Ascend has formalized our policy to not change Level I Decisions. Click here for more information.

Over the last year, the PASRR Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) reviewed and provided feedback to each state on their PASRR Level I Screening Tool. In response to PTAC's findings, Ascend has worked with state officials to make small enhancements to strengthen the clinical screening components of your state's Level I Tool. We will be rolling out this enhanced Level I Tool in the coming weeks.

WHAT WON'T CHANGE: Provider workflow will not change.

WHAT WILL CHANGE: The newly enhanced Level I Tool will begin asking Providers to report on substance-related disorders, along with current or past symptoms and behaviors. In addition, you'll be asked to estimate when the most recent symptoms and behaviors, treatment history, and substance abuse occured.
