OHCA Policies and Rules
Each service has a specified unit of service (unit) for billing purposes which represents the actual time spent providing a direct service. Direct service must be face-to face with the child. There is no reimbursement for time reviewing/completing paperwork and/or documentation related to the service or for staff travel to/from the site of service, unless otherwise specified.
(1) Most units of service are time-based, meaning that the service must be of a minimum duration in order to be billed. A unit of service that is time-based is continuous minutes; the time cannot be aggregated throughout the day.
(2) There are no minimum time requirements for evaluation services, for which the unit of service is generally a completed evaluation. The only exception is the evaluation and testing (OAC 317:30-5-1023(b)(1)(H), which is billed in hourly increments.
