Consistent with the Ohio Department of Medicaid’s (ODM) rules to promote high-quality service, the IHBT Fidelity Tool was developed to ensure compliance with IHBT service delivery standards. Providers choosing to bill services under Medicaid’s IHBT bundled rate must be certified.
Certification assures minimum fidelity standards are being met, consistent with the ODM and OhioMHAS IHBT rule. The Fidelity Tool consists of 17 fidelity standards, with ratings measured on a 1-5 scale.
Each rating of 5 indicates best practice for that standard. Minimum fidelity is achieved between ratings 3, 4 and 5 which are highlighted within each standard.
