Service Provider Rate Study Presentations and Input
The Burns & Associates (B&A) Provider Rate Study has been completed and will be presented to the California Legislature on March 15, 2019. B&A and the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) are seeking provider input on the rate study and the proposed rate-setting models. Comments must be received at DDS by April 5, 2019.
Lanterman’s Service Provider Advisory Committee had a presentation on the rate study and the proposed models at their March 6 meeting and recommended sharing the information with service providers in small groups to better facilitate dialogue and gather your input. A link to the rate study can be found at www.dds.ca.gov.
