Introduction: After ODA initially certifies a provider in a region, the provider may apply to become certified to provide the service for which it is already certified in an additional region or additional business site within the same region.

An assisted-living provider certified by ODA for one RCF shall obtain a new certification for each additional RCF pursuant to rule 173-39-03 of the Administrative Code. This rule would not apply.

(A) Application: The provider shall submit a complete application to become certified to provide the service for which it is already certified in an additional region or additional business site within the same region. Only complete applications shall be processed. If the provider does not complete the application within ninety days of the date the application is requested, the application shall expire.

(B) Pre-certification review: ODA's designee shall visit the provider's business site to conduct an on-site pre-certification review to determine if the provider meets the requirements of this chapter to provide the service for which it is already certified in the additional region or additional business site within the same region. For agency providers seeking certification in an additional region, this includes compliance with paragraph (C)(1)(a) of rule 173-39-02 of the Administrative Code. During a state of emergency declared by the governor, or during another time if authorized by ODA, ODA's designee may conduct a desk review of the provider's business site in lieu of a visit.

(C) Approved application: ODA and its designee shall follow the process under paragraph (E) of rule 173-39-03 of the Administrative Code for an approved application for certification to provide the service for which it is already certified in an additional region or additional business site within the same region.

(D) Denied application: ODA and its designee shall follow the process under paragraph (G) of rule 173-39-03 of the Administrative Code for a denied application to become certified to provide the service for which it is already certified in an additional region or additional business site within the same region.
