As required by Welfare and Institutions Code § 4519.8 , the California Department Developmental Services (DDS) is in the process of studying the reimbursement rates paid for community-based services for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Burns & Associates, Inc. (B&A), is assisting DDS with this study.  This assistance includes the administration of a vendor survey to collect data regarding providers’ service delivery designs and costs.  B&A consulted with DDS and the Developmental Services Task Force’s Rates Work group to develop the Excel-based survey and accompanying instructions.

You can find the survey links and other information on DDS’s website at: https://www.dds.ca.gov/RateStudy/index.cfm
