Independent Provider Changes

How to submit claims for overtime payments (PDF)

On October 6, United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts denied an application that would have stayed implementation of the U.S. Department of Labor's Home Care Final Rule. The rule applies to minimum wage and overtime. 

Additionally, on December 9, the Ohio General Assembly clarified in law that an Independent Provider who provides services to an individual on Medicaid is not a public employee.

Currently, all Ohio independent providers are paid at a rate that meets or exceeds federal minimum wage standards.

DODD will make overtime payments to eligible independent providers who bill for more than 40 hours in a work week for dates of service beginning January 1, 2016. Learn more in this overtime guidance, including how overtime payments will be calculated.

If you have questions, please call the DODD Support Center at 800-617-6733.
