Proposed State Rules


House Bill 483 of the 131st General Assembly transferred responsibility for implementing the Early Intervention services program from the Ohio Department of Health to the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and charged the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities with adopting rules necessary to implement the program.  The first of new rules to be developed, 5123:2-10-01 (Early Intervention Services - System of Payments) went into effect in 2017.  Department staff have continued to work with system stakeholders since that time to develop three additional new rules.  These rules were re-filed with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) on March 1.

Additionally, the Department is proposing to rescind rule 5123:2-10-01 (Early Intervention Services - System of Payments) and adopt a new replacement rule of the same title numbered 5123-10-03.  The rule establishes a system to pay for activities and expenses that are reasonable and necessary for implementing Ohio's Early Intervention system for eligible children and their families.  The rule is being revised to change the rule number, align definitions and wording with that in the three new rules, clarify that "extraordinary medical expenses" does not include elective medical care, and eliminate the appendix to the rule (which will instead be Appendix C to new rule 5123-10-03).  

These rules are tentatively scheduled to be on the agenda for the March 25, 2019 JCARR meeting.  Additional details are available on the JCARR website.
