Public Hearings for Proposed Rules

November 22, 2019  (See Public Hearing Notice for details.)

House Bill 166 of Ohio's 133rd General Assembly committed funding to better meet the transportation needs of Ohioans with developmental disabilities.  As a result, the Department is proposing actions involving several rules governing transportation services:

 

Rule 5123:2-9-18 (Home and Community-Based Services Waivers - Non-Medical Transportation Under the Individual Options, Level One, and Self-Empowered Life Funding Waivers) with Appendices is being rescinded and replaced by a new rule of the same title numbered 5123-9-18 with Appendices.  The rule defines Non-Medical Transportation and sets forth provider qualifications, requirements for service delivery and documentation of services, and payment standards for the service.  New rule 5123-9-18 reflects restructuring of the service delivery mode and increases the payment rates for providers of Non-Medical Transportation at the per-mile rate.

 

Rule 5123:2-9-19 (Home and Community-Based Services Waivers - General Requirements for Adult Day Support, Career Planning, Group Employment Support, Individual Employment Support, Non-Medical Transportation, and Vocational Habilitation) with Appendices is being rescinded and replaced by a new rule of the same title numbered 5123-9-19 with Appendices.  The rule establishes general requirements governing provision of and payment for Adult Day Support, Career Planning, Group Employment Support, Individual Employment Support, Non-Medical Transportation, and Vocational Habilitation provided to individuals enrolled in Home and Community-Based Services waivers administered by the Department.  New rule 5123-9-19 reflects increases to the Non-Medical Transportation budget limitations which are included in Appendix B to the rule.

 

Rule 5123-9-24 (Home and Community-Based Services Waivers - Transportation Under the Individual Options, Level One, and Self-Empowered Life Funding Waivers) with Appendix is being amended.  The rule defines Transportation and sets forth provider qualifications, requirements for service delivery and documentation of services, and payment standards for the service.  The rule is being amended to align the payment rates for Transportation with the payment rates for Non-Medical Transportation at the per-mile rate set forth in rule   5123-9-18.
