Intermediate Care Facilities

What is an ICF?

An Intermediate Care Facility is commonly known as an ICF.
An ICF is a place where someone with a disability can choose to live and get the services that help them live their life. These facilities have staff and aides who work there 24 hours a day.
ICFs are licensed by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities to be operated by a specific provider at a specific location. The Ohio Department of Health certifies the licensed facility.
The provider is responsible for all aspects of care for the people being served, including financial matters, transportation, habilitation and medical needs.
