Provider Survey

As part of this study, HMA-Burns has developed surveys to collect data regarding providers’ service delivery designs and costs. The survey is voluntary, but all providers are strongly encouraged to participate as the information collected will be a key consideration in the study.

Data collected through these surveys will be used solely for the purpose of conducting the wage and rate study and evaluating provider payment rates for the services listed above. HMA-Burns will not share individual provider surveys with DHS or any other party and only aggregated data will be reported.

Each survey covers one or more services. Please complete the survey(s) that apply to the services that you provide. A webinar that walks through the revenue, cost, and direct care forms that are common across all surveys can be accessed here.
