Other Budget Issues

Last Updated: 2/3/2010
Budget Issue: Eliminate IHSS for recipients with functional index scores of less than 4.
Program: In-Home Supportive Services
Finding or Recommendation: Although we find that reductions to the IHSS program are possible, in the short term, we recommend that the Legislature focus its work in the special session on developing a better measure of impairment for IHSS recipients. This measure will help the Legislature make IHSS reduction decisions in the future.
