We perform medical assessments and help fill out the required resident health forms for your Assisted Living Facility
The state requires regular health assessments to be documented by licensed practitioners on the appropriate forms. Phoenix Medical Centers offers convenient, professional health assessments to protect patients' health and help you ensure your facility's compliance with legal requirements. Each form has parts that must be completed in person by a licensed doctor examining the patient.
We will help you ensure the required paperwork is correctly filled out and signed by the doctor, so the patient is credited for treatment.
importance of the 1823 & 3008 forms
These forms are the keys to the medical services door, and at the same time, a security mechanism for every party involved in the process.
These forms store information on the patient’s medical history and eligibility for treatments. They are used to describe what kind of treatments need to take place, what kind of medical services are required to provide such treatments, under what conditions or facilities treatments are going to take place, all the special measures and details corresponding to the patient’s condition and treatments, and more.
What is the purpose of the 1823 & the 3008F Forms?
The 1823 form
The 1823 form is intended to determine whether assisted living care is appropriate for a patient. It must be completed by a licensed medical provider. The form requires many details on the patient’s condition, need for assistance, self care abilities, medical history, and more.
It also captures information regarding who is responsible for every part of the treatment process, daily living activities like eating, bathing, toileting, and more. All of this is essential information for the patient’s security and serves as legal documentation. This form must be updated at regular intervals as required by law or after any significant change in the patient's condition.
The 3008 form
The 3008 form is used to access Medicaid long term care services. It helps determine medical eligibility for Medicaid Waiver programs. This form must be signed by a licensed health care practitioner.
