There are two primary ways services are funded—either through Medicaid waivers or Supported Living.
Billing for waiver services is submitted directly to the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities. All services must be authorized through the PAWS (Payment Authorization for Waiver Services) and fall within the limits of the PAWS.
As an independent contractor, each waiver provider will receive a Form 1099 from the state of Ohio each January for use in reporting self-employment income.
For assistance with billing for Supported Living services, please contact your local county board of developmental disabilities.
