The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) now has the application ready for therapists to begin the enrollment process to obtain a State Provider Number, which is required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The “Order, Refer, Prescribe” (ORP) mandate requires that all Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech-Language Therapists and Audiologists that perform ORP services must be enrolled in the State’s Medicaid Program.
The attached instructions must be shared with the therapists involved so that the application can be submitted and a provider number can be assigned before 07/01/2017. The provider number must be in place by that date in order for your district to be in compliance and receive reimbursement for any MSP services. HBS will be able to assist you with this process by email, phone, via webinar, etc. We can also arrange for a representative to come to your district and work with larger groups of therapists at one time.
It is extremely important that you communicate to your therapists the importance of completing the application. Beginning 07/01/2017, we will not be able to process Medicaid claims for ORP therapists that have not enrolled. Once a therapist obtains their Medicaid Provider Number, please send it to HBS by phone, fax or email.
We will also post this message in our therapist documentation software. Please contact our office with any questions.
