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.
