5167.40 [Renumbered from 5111.173] Appointment of temporary manager.

The department of medicaid shall appoint a temporary manager for a medicaid managed care organization if the department determines that the medicaid managed care organization has repeatedly failed to meet substantive requirements specified in the "Social Security Act," sections 1903(m) and 1932, 42 U.S.C. 1396b(m) and 1396u-2; or 42 C.F.R. 438 Part I. The appointment of a temporary manager does not preclude the department from imposing other sanctions available to the department against the medicaid managed care organization.

The medicaid managed care organization shall pay all costs of having the temporary manager perform the temporary manager's duties, including all costs the temporary manager incurs in performing those duties. If the temporary manager incurs costs or liabilities on behalf of the medicaid managed care organization, the medicaid managed care organization shall pay those costs and be responsible for those liabilities.

The appointment of a temporary manager is not subject to Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, but the managed care organization may request a reconsideration of the appointment. Reconsiderations shall be requested and conducted in accordance with rules the medicaid director shall adopt under section 5167.02 of the Revised Code.

The appointment of a temporary manager does not cause the medicaid managed care organization to lose the right to appeal, in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, any proposed termination or any decision not to revalidate the medicaid managed care organization's provider agreement or the right to initiate the sale of the medicaid managed care organization or its assets.
