An administrative hearing is a chance to review changes or problems with your Developmental Disability Services.
An independent judge will listen and make a decision about your case.
If your services are changing, you will get a notice to let you know. This is called a Notification of Planned Action Form (form number SDS 0947).
The notice will tell you:
After you get this notice, you can ask for a hearing if you want your services to stay the same.
There are two ways to ask for a hearing.
You can verbally ask your service coordinator, personal agent or ODHS to set up a hearing for you.
If you want your services to stay the same, tell your service coordinator or personal agent when you ask for a hearing.
Fill out the Administrative Hearings Request Form (form number SDS 0443DD).

Send completed forms to:
ODHS-ODDSAttn: Complaint Coordinator500 Summer St NE, E-09Salem, OR 97301
Once we get your request, we will assign a hearings representative to work with you. They will be your contact during the hearing process.
Your hearings representative will schedule a phone call to talk about your services. You can choose if you want to be part of this phone call or not.
If you still want a hearing after the phone call, the hearings representative will schedule one. You will get a letter in the mail from the Office of Administrative Hearings with the date and time of your hearing.
You must attend the hearing. All hearings are done on the phone unless you ask to attend in person. During the hearing, you can ask questions and present your side.
An Administrative Law Judge will make a decision about your case. You will get a formal response in the mail. This is called a Final Order.
The Final Order you get in the mail will tell you how to appeal. Appeals happen in the Marion County Circuit Court.
