For any questions, please contact Seth Walker.

STEP 1: Contact Your Local County Board of DD

The Columbiana County Board of Developmental Disabilities case worker number is (330) 424-0404.

You will be assigned a Service & Support Administrator (SSA). This is a County Board staff assigned to work directly with you, the individual, family or guardian. The SSA is responsible for helping you plan, coordinate and monitor your individualized program and intervening when necessary to assure continuity and consistency of services.

STEP 2: Determine Eligibility for Services

Your SSA will explain everything to you about eligibility requirements for Medicaid and Medicaid Waivers. If Medicaid eligibility has not been determined, your SSA will help coordinate the application process with the Department of Job and Family Services. Your SSA will also explain the different kinds of Waivers and will guide you through the Waiver application process. If the individual does not qualify for Medicaid, there are other payment options that can be explained fully by one of our employees, if needed.

STEP 3: Determine What Types of Services Are Needed

Your SSA will coordinate the assessment process and work with you to develop an ISP—an Individual Service Plan designed to ensure that all your needs are met.

STEP 4: Determine Who Will Provide Services Needed

This is based on the Level of Care Assessment. You have a right to choose a provider of services. If your choice to provide services is us, then you can request to your SSA that we are your service provider.
