Analysis of the California In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Plus Waiver Demonstration Program
07/29/2008 | 386 Requests *
Via IHSS Plus, participants are able to receive certain expanded in-home services as part of Medi-Cal. Before, payments for these services were not matched by a federal contribution and were administered through a separate program. The analysis looks at implementation and service use in 2005, compares recipients’ outcomes and institutionalization rates to those in the original IHSS program, and complements the State’s evaluation and other research on paying family caregivers.
