Feedback / OACB seeking public input on state budget proposal to phase out independent providers

Before June 30, the State of Ohio will decide whether to continue permitting Independent Providers to offer waiver services under Ohio's three, non-self-directed developmental disabilities Medicaid waivers. Waivers affected by the plan would include the Individual Options (IO) Waiver, Level One Waiver, and Transitions DD (TDD) Waiver.

Because this proposal has the potential to greatly affect the nature of service provision to people with developmental disabilities in Ohio, OACB would like to hear from people who receive services on a DD waiver (and their family members) on why this proposal is good or bad for Ohio's developmental disability service delivery system.
