As of October 2022, California now requires all counties to maintain a Backup Provider registry for individuals using In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) and Waiver Personal Care services. The Registry can be accessed by individuals already enrolled in IHSS or by individuals transitioning to the community from institutional care and have not yet identified a provider.
In this webinar, we will cover:
-A brief overview of California’s IHSS program
-A review of the state’s new Backup Provider System
-Who can access the Backup Provider System
-Requirements for Provider enrollment in County Backup Registries
Who should participate: County and IHSS government agencies, aging and disability advocates, and individuals using IHSS and Waiver Personal Care services who want to learn more about what the Backup Provider System is, and who can use it.
