Membership Options

 

Provider Membership                 

Provider Membership is for businesses that provide services directly to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  If your agency bills the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, or a local county board of developmental disabilities for services provided by your agency, you are eligible for a Provider Membership.  Provider Member dues are calculated based on a percentage of your agency's estimated gross revenue from supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

New OPRA Provider Members will receive a one-time introductory dues discount of 35%.

All current OPRA Provider Members who submit their renewal forms by 3/15/2022 will receive a 5% dues discount based on their payment plan.  This discount will be reflected on your dues invoice that will be sent to you within 24-48 hours after completion.
