CDER Materials for Regional Centers

The Client Development Evaluation Report (CDER) is changing beginning on October 1, 2015 to comply with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements to use ICD-10 codes for medical diagnosis and inpatient procedure coding.

Revised Forms

  • DS 3753A - Diagnostic Element (PDF)
  • DS 3753B - CDER Evaluation Element - English (PDF)
  • DS 3753C - CDER Evaluation Element - Spanish (PDF)
Note: Only the Consumer Survey questions have been translated into Spanish because these questions are to be asked verbatim as they contain important key words or phrases. Because the response options in the Consumer Survey are not to be read to the consumer, these have not been translated.
