FROM: Kimberly Hall, Director
SUBJECT: Amended Rule for Step Up To Quality

Background: On January 6, 2019, the Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) rules contained in Chapter 5101:2-17 of the Ohio Administrative Code became effective due to the five-year review process. The following SUTQ rule has been amended to reinsert erroneously omitted language.

The rule will be effective on May 13, 2019.

Amended Rule:

5101:2-17-04 "Step Up To Quality (SUTQ): changes, renewals, removals or requests to withdraw a SUTQ rating" has been amended with the following changes: 

  • Reinserted "or a six-point serious risk non-compliance" to paragraph (F)(1)(b)
  • Reinserted "risk" in paragraph (F)(2)

This amendment fixes the error and aligns to the agreed upon language.
