Hello Vocational Rehabilitation Providers:
Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) streamlined the latest Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) provider forms based on valuable provider feedback. Specifically, Form 21- Summer Youth Work Experience and Form 23- START UP simplified the reporting requirements and highlighted the required fields in green. OOD is considering streamlining additional VR provider forms for easier use and to reduce redundancies. Please note that although the long-term goal is to have the forms exist online, the newly updated forms will remain in the Excel format. To move forward with this initiative, it would be helpful to know when providers would prefer to have the updated forms implemented.
With the understanding that the AWARE Vendor Portal will be launched later this year and will require staff training (October-December), please consider what would work best for your organization and click here to complete a short Provider Forms Survey. The survey will be open through September 15, 2021. Thank you in advance for your input.
