Member Updates

Statewide Updates / Public forums on CMS transition begin this week

The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) will begin a series of public forums this week to educate the public on the state's efforts to comply with new Medicaid rules. Discussion topics will include the state's draft transition plan to be submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

These meetings are the first such public education events hosted by the department about the transition plan. These are meant to be informational only and are not for the purpose of receiving official public comment, which will be taken by the Governor's Office of Health Transformation (OHT).

The meeting dates and locations are as follows. Visit for more information.


Event Evaluations and CECs / OACB 31st Annual Convention

Thanks again to all the attendees of the OACB 31st Annual Convention, which took place December 3-5 in Columbus. Event evaluation forms and Continuing Education Credit (CEC) applications have been posted.

The evaluation and CEC forms are linked. You will first be asked to submit an overall evaluation for the Convention as a whole.

Once that form has been completed, you will be shown to the session evaluation form, which can be used to review a single session from the convention. The session evaluation form is meant to be completed multiple times so you can evaluate all the sessions that you attended. Once you have submitted your first session evaluation, the page will ask if you need to submit another. Repeat until you have evaluated all the session in which you took part.

Once you have filled out your final session evaluation, click the link on the session evaluation confirmation page to begin the CEC application. Please note that you will not be able to apply for CECs until and unless you have filled the overall convention evaluation and at least one session evaluation.




To see photos and videos from the event, check our Facebook page and our YouTube channel.

Speaker presentations can be found by clicking here.

Thanks to all our attendees, members, speakers, and staff who helped make the event a big success!
