Effective Jan. 18, 2018, OAC 5123:2-7-29 Intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities - pediatric ventilator services was amended to include people with disabilities of all ages.
Providers who wish to be approved to provide ventilator services and who qualify for enhanced payment in accordance with OAC 5123:2-7-29 may find the application here. Providers may contact the outlier coordinator, Mark Holzapfel, at CR-ICF@dodd.ohio.gov for assistance with the certification process.
Providers currently approved for pediatric ventilator services will not be required to repeat the approval process but must obtain prior authorization for anyone who will be new to the program following the amended rule.
