The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) and the Ohio Department of Aging have received federal approval to make COVID relief payments to eligible Ohio Home Care, PASSPORT, and MyCare (HCBS) providers. The amount of each eligible provider’s payment will be calculated as a percentage of the total amount of paid claims for waiver nursing, personal care, and home care attendant for dates of service from 8/1/2020 through 10/31/2020. In addition, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, under the same authority, received federal approval and has made COVID relief payments for the same dates and similar community-based services. These are one-time payments and no other actions are required by the provider to receive payment. Eligible providers can expect payment around May 17, 2021.
