Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICFs/IID)


The Ohio Department of Health’s Division of Quality Assurance, Bureau of Long Term Care Quality conducts certification surveys of Ohio’s 436 ICFs/IID.  An ICF/IID provider is responsible for all aspects of care for the individual, including financial matters, transportation, rehabilitation, and medical needs.  To qualify for Medicaid reimbursement,  ICFs/IID must be certified and comply with the Federal standards (referred to as Conditions of Participation, found in Federal regulations at 42 CFR Part 483, Subpart I, Sections 483.400-483.480).

The Division of Quality Assurance ensures individuals are receiving needed active treatment services by conducting on-site inspections/surveys for compliance with state and federal rules and regulations in ICFs/IID.  Each ICF/IID facility in Ohio receives at least one unannounced inspection/survey every 9-15 months survey cycle.  The division also investigates complaints related to an individual’s rights, quality of care, quality of life, staffing, abuse, dietary and environmental concerns.

When an ICF/IID does not comply with rules and regulations, an enforcement action may be initiated to terminate the facility’s Title XIX Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) certification.
