Ohio rules allow the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) to remove waiver benefits if the person “fails or refuses to use services” in accordance with the person’s plan. The Department of Developmental Disabilities has identified 900 persons who are on waivers, but who have not used waiver services for a year.
DODD WILL INITIATE DISENROLLMENT FOR PEOPLE ON WAIVERS WHO ARE ON THIS LIST AND WHO DO NOT MAKE USE OF THEIR WAIVER SERVICES BY JUNE 2016!
IT is critical that all individuals and families understand the serious consequences that could result from their disenrollment from waivers. Once the actual disenrollment has begun, DODD actually will provide the Due Process notices to waiver enrollees.
Please do everything in your power to utilize waiver services and preserve your enrollment.
