Maintaining Institutions
(01/01/22 – 12/31/22)
To be added to the PST Institution List (for internal use only), institutions must be reviewed by the Policy Support Team (PST). When a participant resides in an institution not listed on the PST Institution List, staff must elevate a completed Request to Verify Eligibility of an Institution (FAA-1789A) form to PST via email by the end of the workday.
NOTE Only facilities which meet the definition of an institution(g) must be elevated to PST.
The institutions on the PST Institution List include the following:
Other facilities which provide a majority of meals
PST completes the following within ten workdays of receiving the request:
Determines whether the elevated institution meets the requirements to become an approved institution
Determines whether the participant residing in the institution is potentially eligible for NA benefits
Sends an email response to inform staff of the findings
Adds the facility to the PST Institution List, indicating whether the facility is approved
It is the responsibility of the PST to ensure the institutions listed on the PST Institution List as approved meet all qualification requirements.
When information is received that indicates the information on the PST Institution List is outdated or incorrect, elevate a completed FAA-1789A form to the PST and include an explanation of the reasons the current information needs updating.
