The Oregon Department of Human Services’ (DHS) Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODDS) is in the process of reviewing the approach to paying for Professional Behavior Services. Burns & Associates, a division of Health Management Associates (HMA-Burns), has been contracted to assist with this study.
As part of this study, HMA-Burns is distributing a survey to collect data regarding Professional Behavior Service providers’ operations and structures. 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 this survey will be used solely for the purpose of evaluating Professional Behavior Services payment structures. Only aggregated data will be reported; no provider-specific information will be published.
The provider survey instructions can be found here.
The Excel-based provider survey can be found here.
A webinar that walks through the provider survey can be found here.
The deadline for submitting completed surveys is October 30, 2023.
Please submit completed surveys to HMA-Burns at [email protected].
