The Union County Board of DD had previously communicated with you regarding a proposed rule that would limit the hours of independent providers in the state of Ohio to 40 hours per week. At that time, we began a proactive plan of reducing overtime hours in order to be ready for full implementation of the rule by July 1, 2017.
Based on public input, The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities is currently working on revisions to the rule. Therefore, the rule will NOT become effective July 1, 2017. However, according to information received from DODD, we expect that a new version of the rule will be refiled sometime this summer.
Although the county board will not be limiting overtime hours for providers at this time, Service Consultants will continue to lead discussions with teams about how to best meet the needs of those we serve.
We will continue to communicate updates with you as we receive them. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 937-645-6784 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Provider Support: DODD has established a Support Center to serve you better. By calling the Support Center, you will be able to speak with DODD staff, instead of leaving a voice mail message. The phone number is 1-800-617-6733. The Support Center is open from Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is closed on State holidays. You may leave a voice mail if you call after hours.
When you call the Support Center, you will be given a list of five options. Based on the option you select, a knowledgeable staff person will assist you. The following options are available:
· Option 1: Reporting Neglect or Abuse
· Option 2: Claims Services and Billing
· Option 3: Provider Certification
· Option 4: Security (System Access, passwords resets, etc.)
