LeadingAge Ohio is a nonprofit organization that represents approximately 500 long-term care organizations and hospices, as well as those providing ancillary health care and housing services, in more than 150 Ohio towns and cities. The continuum of care reflected by the member organizations serve an estimated 400,000 elderly Ohioans daily and employ more than 35,000 persons statewide.
Senior services providers include senior housing, both subsidized and market rate, adult day care, home- and community-based services, assisted living and skilled nursing. A majority of LeadingAge Ohio members are faith-based and provide many or all of these services.
LeadingAge Ohio is a member-driven organization, with leadership elected by peers from around the state. The leadership team is composed of the Board of Directors, including executive committee officers; regional directors, responsible for organizing in-district member meetings; and delegates, who represent LeadingAge Ohio at our national organization. Strategic committees, action councils and special interest groups comprised of members from around the state help to develop and oversee governing policies and positions.
The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has issued a reminder that May 24, 2016 will be the first deadline for some nursing facilities to revalidate their provider agreement.
Recently, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (“ODM”) issued the Initial Post-Payment Claims Overpayment Review Reports for fiscal year 2011. As LeadingAge Ohio reported in an alert to members on February 29, following the issuance of these reports, ODM received a number of comments from providers and associations expressing concerns over the content of the reports. Today, as a result, ODM has made the decision to conduct another review of all the reports that were issued. In order to facilitate this review, ODM is waiving the 30-day requirement for providers to file a response to request a bureau-level resolution process (NF) or audit conference (ICF).
