COVID-19 Relief Payment to Waiver Residential Providers Announced
The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has worked closely with Governor Mike DeWine’s office, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM), the Ohio Association of County Boards of Developmental Disabilities (OACB), and Ohio’s 88 county boards of developmental disabilities to issue a one-time COVID-19 relief payment to agency and independent waiver residential providers.

This payment follows COVID-19 provider relief payments made to day service, non-medical transportation, and intermediate care facility (ICF) providers. These payments are in recognition of additional costs providers have incurred during the state of emergency.
