Medicaid home and community-based services waiver approved under authority of §1915(c) of the Social Security Act 0231.R04.08


~~“The amendment reflects the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities’ (DODD’s) intention to add the availability of a competency rate add on for qualified providers in the Individual Options waiver, and update table estimates to reflect a rate increase for respite services. The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities is responding
 to the needs voiced by stakeholders to address a shortage of direct service providers felt across the state. Providers face increasing challenges to recruit and retain staff. The longevity of
staff is critical to providing quality services, enabling individuals to work, live and play in their communities.”
