Thank you for your interest in becoming a Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) provider for Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD). OOD partners with private and public providers to assist individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain competitive integrated employment within the community.

If you are interested in being added as a medical (physical therapist, hearing aid provider, etc.), psychological, or dental supplier of services, please contact a local office and ask to speak to an Account Examiner. The Account Examiner will be able to discuss standard rates, billing processes, and working together to support individuals with disabilities.
