Providing services for the developmentally disabled population is an important component of the long-term care continuum in Ohio. With rapidly changing advances in care and services, ICF/IID care has captured much interest on the part of lawmakers, advocacy groups and the media. In an effort to convey the message of ICF/IID providers and to advocate fully and forcefully, the Ohio Health Care Association formed the Ohio Centers for Intellectual Disabilities (OCID).
OHCA has been an outspoken leader in the development and continued service to ICF/IID providers in Ohio. OCID is a natural outgrowth of those early efforts, combining the strength of OHCA's solid reputation, experienced staff and government relation's expertise with a singular focus on the growth and development of ICF/IID provider services.
OCID's objectives are twofold. First, to ensure that Ohio's developmentally disabled residents have access to quality housing and living services and the means to acquire those services. Equally important, the organization strives to create an environment that affords ICF/IID providers ready access to available resources and opportunities for advancement.
