California’s In-Home Supportive Services Program: Who is Served?

By Debi Waterstone, Taewoon Kang, Cristina Flores, Candace Howes, Charlene Harrington and Robert Newcomer


Governor Schwarzenegger\u27s preliminary 2004-05 Budget Bill proposed to eliminate a component of California\u27s In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program serving approximately 68,000 individuals. This component, known as the Residual Program, included Protective Supervision and Domestic Care services and services provided by parents and spouses. Under the then existing regulations and the state\u27s approved state plan for Medicaid, these services did not qualify for shared financing with the Medicaid program and were thus funded solely by state and county sources. The objective of the administration\u27s proposal was to obtain an estimated net savings from the IHSS program in Fiscal Year 2005 of $366 million
