The Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living (DAIL), Developmental Disabilities Services Division (DDSD) is partnering with service providers to explore new payment models for developmental disabilities services.

The Burns & Associates division of Health Management Associates (HMA-Burns) is assisting DDSD with this initiative and has established this website as a repository for study-related materials.


A key factor in this effort is a provider survey to collect data regarding providers’ service delivery designs and costs, which is available for download:

  • The Excel-based survey can be accessed here.
  • The survey instructions can be accessed here.
  • A webinar that walks through the survey can be accessed here.

Data collected through this survey will be used solely for the purpose of evaluating payment reform options. Only aggregated data will be reported; no provider-specific information will be published.

Completed surveys are due by Monday, November 20 and should be submitted to [email protected].
