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.
