DODD Training - Self Waiver

The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has established trainings for providers as a means to learn more about the Self-Empowered Life Funding (SELF)Waiver, which is on-track to become effective July 1, 2012. As a part of the SELF Waiver informational trainings that are being conducted byDODD, the Department has set aside a statewide webinar training for June 26 & 27as well as an on-site training on July 31 & August 1 (the latter of which will be held inReynoldsburg, Ohio). The Department will also be adding an additional SELF Waiver webinar training in early fall.

The agenda for these trainings is attached, but in general, the first day will cover the elements of the waiver, including such topics as service definitions and specifications and providing an explanation on the participant-directed aspects of the waiver (and what that means to Ohio's Developmental Disabilities System). The second day will be about the changes to DODD's IT systems to allow for the incorporation of the SELF waiver, including the Provider Certification Wizard (PCW)as well as the Payment Authorization for Waiver Services (PAWS) and Medicaid Billing System (MBS). In addition, this training will explain the role of the new entity of Financial Management Services, and what that means to providers. The links to register for the webinar or the on-site training in Reynoldsburg are listed in the attached document, entitled "Registration for SELF Waiver Trainings".
