Ohio Medicaid Provider Exclusion and Suspension List

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) was founded in July 2013. It is the premier Executive-level Medicaid agency of the state of Ohio. Led by Director John B. McCarthy and in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation, the ODM provides health care coverage to 2.9 million residents daily, through 83,000 providers.

Through the Ohio Revised Code, the Ohio Department of Medicaid has been granted rule-making authority which covers:

1.) Adoption of new rules.

2.) Amendment/Repealing of current rules.

These rules are accessible here: Medicaid Program Rules, Section 5160

One of ODM’s core commitments is to provide Ohio’s families and taxpayers with healthcare service of utmost efficiency and transparency through, among other things, a relentless fight against healthcare fraud.
