ILOS guidance documents now available on the OHA ILOS website. In Lieu of Services (ILOS) are services determined by the state to be medically appropriate and cost-effective substitutes for covered services or settings under the State Medicaid Plan. The guidance documents include benefits ad criteria of ILOS, coding guidance, ansers to CCO questions and a comparison between OHA spending initiatives. We hope these documents will provide clarity and guidance in how your CCO can utilize ILOS.
