317:2-1-9. OHCA's Designated Agent's appeal process for QIO Decisions
The OHCA's Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) conducts an administrative process for those providers it reviews. The process afforded providers by QIO is the only administrative remedy available to providers. The decision issued by the QIO is considered by the OHCA to be a final administrative determination. The final QIO determination is not appealable to the OHCA for any further administrative hearings. After the QIO'S decision, OHCA will recoup the monies paid the provider related to the review.
