An applicant may not begin employment until the conditional license has been issued.

A conditional license is valid for eighteen months unless suspended or revoked pursuant to section 3123.47 or 4753.10 of the Revised Code.
A person holding a conditional license may perform services for which payment will be sought under the medicare program or the medicaid program but all requests for payment for such services shall be made by the person who supervises the person performing the services.
