Burns & Associates (B&A) was contracted by the Department of
Developmental Services (DDS) to conduct the Rate Study. B&A
conducted a Service Provider Survey in Spring/Summer 2018. They
also conducted a Client & Family Survey. B&A developed draft
rate models. B&A and DDS presented the draft rate models and
related assumptions at briefing sessions, and the Rate
Study Report in March 15, 2019.
In 2019, the HRC Service Provider Advisory Committee and
Department of Community Services hosted sessions to assist
service providers from specific service categories to submit
public comments regarding the DDS Rate Study. The sessions were
geared toward specific service categories.
DDS has received public comments, and the Draft Rate
Models may be modified as appropriate.
