317:45-1-4.Reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses

[Revised 09-01-16]
(a) Out-of-pocket expenses for all approved and eligible members (and/or their approved and eligible dependents) will be limited to 5 percent of their annual gross household income. The OHCA will provide reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses in excess of the 5 percent annual gross household income. A expense must be for an allowed and covered service by a qualified benefit plan(QBP) to be eligible for reimbursement. For the purpose of this Section, an allowed and covered service is defined as an in-network service covered in accordance with a qualified benefit plan's benefit summary and policies. For instance, if a QBP has multiple in-network reimbursement percentage methodologies (80% for level 1 provider and 70% for level 2 provider) the OHCA will only reimburse expenses related to the highest percentage network.

(b) For all eligible expenses as defined above in OAC k317:45-1-4(a), the member must submit the OHCA required form and all OHCA required documentation to support that the member incurred and paid the out-of-pocket expense. The OHCA required documentation must substantiate that the member actually incurred and paid the eligible out-of-pocket expense. The OHCA may request additional documentation at any time to support a member's request for reimbursement of eligible out-of-pocket expenses.
