OAR 582-075-0010
General Policy


The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (OVRS) does not have the authority to reimburse vendors for the cost of goods and services if OVRS has not authorized payment prior to the provision of goods and services. OVRS shall reject all charges without such prior authorization.


Except as provided in subsection (3) of this rule and OAR 582-075-0030 (Medical Evidence of Record (MER) and Narrative Charges), the amount that OVRS shall pay vendors for previously authorized medical or psychological services shall be the lesser of the following:


The lowest fee that the vendor charges the general public or other state agencies for the service; or


One of the following prescribed fees:


The maximum fee prescribed by the Workers’ Compensation Schedule.


For medical, psychological, laboratory, and other services not governed by that schedule, OVRS shall pay the amount derived by applying the cost ratio between that schedule and the Division of Medical Assistance Program (DMAP) Schedule to the fee prescribed by the DMAP schedule.


With prior written approval by the Field Services Manager, OVRS may exceed the fee prescribed by subsection (2) of this rule when financial or human considerations outweigh the difference in cost.
