AREP Screens for Long-Term Care cases
Purpose: For LTC services, an ACES award letter is required in order for the provider to bill correctly and receive the correct amount of participation from the individual. Each change in service, participation or living arrangement requires a new award letter. AREP screens are also completed when the individual has an authorized representative such as a guardian, power of attorney, attorney, protective payees or other representatives handling the individual's affairs. In addition to the individual's representative and advocates, some institutions need to be indicated on the AREP screen for correct payment and billing through SSPS, or Provider One. State Institutions that bill through Financial Service Administration (FSA) are also indicated on the AREP screen.
