Toledo Public Schools, an Ohio Public School District, participates in the Medicaid School Program.
The district is seeking advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) or licensed physician assistants (PA) to complete record reviews and refer children for therapy services (occupational, physical and speech therapy and audiology) provided in a school setting. These students are fully evaluated/assessed by the licensed providers, and services are also delivered by the same licensed practitioners of the healing arts, within their scope of practice, in accordance with Ohio licensure laws. Each student has an individualized educational plan (IEP) of care specific to the school setting.
Toledo Public Schools is building a temporary team of providers to serve until August 1, 2016, since licensed therapists in Ohio cannot serve as an Ordering, Referring or Prescribing (OPR) provider for the Medicaid program. Hired professionals must hold a current license as an APRN, be enrolled in Ohio Medicaid as an 'ORP only' or 'ORP' provider and have a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number as well.
Payment will be based per record review and related referral at $25.00/record, up to $75.00/hour. Work is flexible part time hours from your home via Internet access. Some positions are available onsite. Permanent part-time positions to be considered at the completion of the summer project.
