Level of Care Screens (LOC) for Nursing Facility Residents
Level of care screening must be completed for Medicaid patients in order to receive Medicaid payments for nursing facility stays. The level of care screening must be requested prior to admission or Medicaid coverage as they may only be backdated 30 days if the individual meets level of care and has completed a Level I screen. Please review the information below regarding level of care.
