Federal and state laws require some providers to have pre- and post-enrollment on-site screening visits to ensure program integrity. (See OAC 5160-1-17.8 – formerly OAC 5101:3-1-17.8 for additional information about provider screening requirements).
In Ohio, the Public Consulting Group, Inc. (PCG) will conduct these visits for providers that are not already screened by another state or federal agency. On-site screening visits are conducted without prior notification or appointment. The PCG representatives will have a business card and a letter of introduction, for your verification.
When the PCG representatives arrive at your office, please take a few moments to answer their questions and allow them access to your facility. This will help to complete your on-site visit smoothly. During your site visit, the PCG representatives will review various aspects of your business. Failure to answer their questions and cooperate with the PCG representatives could affect your enrollment or current provider status with Ohio Medicaid.
