Ohio Participant Eligibility Requirements to receive services from RMS
Ohio Eligibility Requirements for Services:
The county board of developmental disabilities provides and coordinates services for eligible county residents who have a developmental disability.
In order to become eligible for services from a county board of developmental disabilities, an individual must have a developmental disability, which is defined under Ohio law as a severe, chronic disability. This is a condition that will likely last a person’s lifetime, and developed before the age of 22, and is due to a mental or physical impairment or a combination of the two, with demonstrated functional limitations.
