Learn about IHSS(In-Home Supportive Service) for a child or adult with a disability.
Eligibility for IHSS is available only to individuals with Medi-Cal, including through the Medicaid Waiver available from Regional Centers called Institutional Deeming.
Your child may be living at home with you or in their own home to be eligible for this public benefit. You might even be paid as the provider of their services.
They may not be living in a group home. If you are considering Supported Living, this service must be tapped if eligible before hours are awarded for supported living.
Younger children may be eligible however it is easier to demonstrate the need for older children.
