PASSPORT and Assisted Living Waiver Provider Applications
Community-Based Long-Term Care (CBLTC) is the state Medicaid waiver program that funds PASSPORT and the Assisted Living Waiver program. These programs allow enrolled participants to receive authorized services in the home or in an Assisted Living Facility at little or no cost to them.
All businesses that wish to provide CBLTC services through these programs must be recommended by Council on Aging (COA) for certification by the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) and Ohio Department of Job & Family Services (ODJFS).
In order for your agency to be considered for certification, you must meet the following conditions:
CBLTC applications require approval from COA, ODA, and ODJFS in order to be certified as a provider.
To become a CBLTC provider for the PASSPORT or Assisted Living Waiver program, providers should begin by submitting an application through the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) website.
If you are an existing CBLTC provider outside of COA`s five county service area (Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties) and wish to expand into our service area, or if your agency is already a COA contracted provider and you want to expand current services or counties, you must contact the Provider Services Department at 513-345-2018.
Below is a brief overview of the process that will be followed for certification of your agency as a PASSPORT or Assisted Living Waiver program service provider.
*If at any time during this process there are changes to the agency or, if you wish to change/add/drop services or counties, you must contact COA`s Provider Services Department as soon as possible. Any discrepancies in the application material may result in the application being rejected by ODA, thus restarting the entire process.
