Division of Aging and Adult Services – NMHCBS Rate Study

The Arizona Department of Economic Security’s Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) is in the process of conducting a study to determine the adequacy of current payment rates for Non-Medical Home and Community Based Services (NMHCBS) provided through eight regional Area Agencies on Aging (AAA). Burns & Associates, a division of Health Management Associates (HMA-Burns), has been contracted to assist with this rate study.


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 recorded 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 should be submitted to Karl Matzinger at [email protected] by Friday, March 15, 2024.
