Welcome! You’ve reached the Certification Renewal Support page.  Here you can determine if you need to renew your certification or “reinstate”.  Please continue to read for further explanation.

How do Recertification and Reinstatement differ?

Recertification (Certification Renewal):

An applicant whose certification has been expired for less than one year shall be required to apply for and meet the requirements for renewal certification. Per the OAC 5123:2-2-01 (I).  The required items may include*:

*Specialized Service Providers follow a different set of standards, so always refer to Rule for confirmation, or obtain the list while applying in the Provider Services Management (PSM) System.

Renewal certifications issued subsequent to the effective date of this rule shall be for a term of three years. 5123:2-2-01 (K)(2)

Reinstatement:

An applicant whose certification has been expired for one year or more shall be required to apply for and meet the requirements for initial certification. Per the OAC 5123:2-2-01 (M)(2)

*Specialized Service Providers follow a different set of standards, so always refer to Rule for confirmation, or obtain the list while applying in the Provider Services Management (PSM) System.

Applying with DODD:

Whether Renewing your Certification or Reinstating, you must complete the Certification Renewal/Reinstatement process with the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) by logging onto the Provider Services Management System (PSM)

Note: Applying online requires access to a computer and printer. A scanner will also be helpful when required to upload your documents.  These documents may no longer be sent via US mail or fax.

*The review and Certification Renewal process takes time once an application is received. To avoid a delay in reimbursement, please submit your application and all required documents no less than sixty to ninety (60 – 90) days prior to the expiration date.
