|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.|
