Residential Weeklong Camp
Billing Information For
Individual Options Waiver,
Self Waiver and 
Level One Waiver
(As of October 1, 2013)

Please be advised that effective October 1, 2011, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has implemented a new service, Community Respite, for camps and campers that pay for camp service through the Individual Options Waiver or Self Waiver.  In addition, effective October 1, 2013, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has implemented a new service, Community Respite, for camps and campers that pay for camp service through the Level One Waiver.

Therefore, please note the following important DODD mandated change in billing procedures for the Individual Options Waiver, Level One Waiver and Self Waiver as it relates to a Recreation Unlimited Farm and Fun, Inc. (Recreation Unlimited) Summer or Winter Residential weeklong camp.

If you have a camper who is on the Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver, or Level One Waiver (after October 1, 2013) and will be attending a Summer or Winter Residential weeklong camp, please be advised that Recreation Unlimited will bill four (4) full day Community Respite units (ARN for Individual Options Waiver, FRN for Level One Waiver, SRN for Self Waiver) per weeklong camp, plus a $180 room and board allowance that is not a billable waiver service and is the responsibility of each individual camper to pay.  This additional charge is due to the decreased amount in reimbursement rates that Recreation Unlimited will receive from the DODD through this Community Respite service, in order that we maintain a quality camping experience.  Room and Board scholarship dollars are available based on need and circumstance. Please adjust your camper’s PAWS to reflect this billing change.  Per the DODD, we will be unable to accept HPC billing for the Individual Options Waiver and Self Waiver after October 1, 2011 and Level One Waiver after October 1, 2013.
 
Please contact Michelle Higgins with questions regarding your camper’s scheduled attendance at Recreation Unlimited.  Please contact DODD for questions regarding PAWs and these mandated billing procedures.  Thank you for your help with this change as we continue to comply with the DODD and offer outstanding service to individuals with disabilities and health concerns through the Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver and Level One Waiver.
