PARS - Part C

​​​​​​What is a Physical Accessibility Review Survey (PARS)?

Part C Reviews are conducted using the Physical Accessibility Review Survey (PARS) for all contracted Primary Care Provider sites, High Volume Ancillary and Specialty Provider (HVASP) sites, and Community Based Adult Services (CBAS). The PARS tool was developed by a collaborative coalition made up of staff from the DHCS and Medi-Cal Managed Care Health Plans to address the​​​​ accessibility of providers’ offices, clinics, and other health care providers that provide medical care to seniors and people with disabilities. Due to barriers, individuals with disabilities are less likely to get routine preventative medical care than people without disabilities.  

Our provider directories are updated with the areas met by each site. The reviewer will evaluate accessibility related to the following indicators: 

= Parking ​​

EB = Exterior Building 

IB = Interior Building

R = Restroom 

E = Exam Room 

T = Exam Table/Scale

ME = Medical Equipment (PCP only) 

Medical Equipment

  • Height adjustable exam table
  • Weight scale

Level of Access

  • Basic Access means the facility demonstrates access in regards to all of the mentioned features.
  • Limited access means one or more of the features are missing or incomplete.
