Stakeholder Feedback Regional Meetings

VR Providers

Over the last several years, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) has made a number of changes in how we deliver vocational rehabilitation services in Ohio. These changes have been successful in achieving improved program performance and have resulted in significant efficiencies for the vocational rehabilitation program.   We recognize the strong role that our providers have played in implementing these changes and want to thank you for your partnership in achieving these results.


These efficiencies, however, have increased the funds that the agency carries forward into the next Federal Fiscal Year. While some may say that this is a good problem to have, we have an important responsibility to make sure that our available resources are fully invested in a manner that ensures that the highest possible quality of services is provided to as many Ohioans with disabilities as possible. This presents us with a unique opportunity to reinvest these cost savings into our fee schedule to further improve services to Ohioans with disabilities.


OOD will be holding a series of five regional meetings with providers in the coming weeks to help OOD identify areas within the Vocational Rehabilitation Fee Schedule that could be enhanced to further improve vocational rehabilitation services delivered statewide.


Please RSVP to the contact next to each office at least a week before the meeting date with the names and full organization name of those attending. Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodations in its services, activities, programs and employment opportunities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other applicable laws. To request a disability reasonable accommodation, call 419-861-8855 or e-mail

We are looking forward to meeting with you, and hearing from our providers about innovative ways to enhance the VR Fee Schedule.
