Due to the COVID-19 emergency and the reorganization of priorities, Waiver Alignment Phase III has been delayed until 1/1/2021. This delay includes promulgation of new OAC rule 5160-44-23 – specialized medical equipment, supplies and devices and new OAC rule 5160-44-21 – vehicle modifications. Waiver amendment submission will be due to CMS by 10/1/2020 and original filing of rules with JCARR will also occur in October. ODM and ODA will continue to engage stakeholders on waiver alignment work during the coming months.
Thank you for your continued support for this initiative.
