DCBDD Fiscal Department re: Billing for Locally-funded Services
Please invoice your 2018 services separately from 2019 services.
Example: If you are invoicing for services rendered on December 28, 2018, December 31, 2018 and January 2, 2019; January 2, 2019 must be submitted on a separate invoice, or sent through OhioDD.com separately.
DCBDD Fiscal Department re: Time to do an Annual Update of your OhioDD.com Profile (locally-funded services only)
While you are billing through OhioDD.com, please do an annual update of your profile information. Once you have logged into your account, verify that your address and contact information are correct by choosing the “Profile” option in the toolbar.
Any time your address changes, please update your profile information in OhioDD.com. This will send a notice to the Fiscal team who will update records at DCBDD and the Delaware County Auditor’s office; so that payment for services provided will be mailed to the correct address.
DCBDD Fiscal Department: 2019 Contracts for Locally-funded Services
P lease submit your completed 2019 contract for local services to DCBDD if you have not already done so. The deadline for contract submission was December 1, 2018, so any outstanding documents will need to be received as soon as possible to avoid service interruption.
DCBDD Provider Compliance Reviewer, Aaron Tiedt:
Lack of service documentation is an emerging trend/pattern identified by both DCBDD Reviewers and DODD Reviewers.  ALL providers are required to maintain service documentation for a minimum of 6 years.  Questions? Need Assistance? Please contact Cheryl at Cheryl.copley@dcbdd.org
