Our Mission:
To Enrich Lives through Effective and Caring Service

The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Program helps pay for services provided to low-income elderly, blind or disabled individuals, including children, so that they can remain safely in their own home. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities.

Some of the services that can be authorized through IHSS include: housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, personal care services (such as bowel and bladder care, bathing, grooming and paramedical services), accompaniment to medical appointments, and protective supervision for the mentally impaired.

Overtime Informational Sessions are available throughout Los Angeles County. To register for an informational session, click on the banner to find the nearest location to you. Although walk-ins are welcomed, you are encouraged to register to ensure a seat at the informational session.

Timesheet At-A-Glance (TAG)

New Image Timesheet At-A-Glance (TAG) is an online system that allows IHSS providers to access information on timesheet activity. TAG provides information on the timesheet received date, if the timesheet was processed, the number of paid hours, and the amount paid. To log on to TAG, the provider will need his/her provider identification number, date of birth, and the last four digits of his/her Social Security Number.

coordinated care initiative logo The Fiscal Year (FY) 2012-13 State Budget established the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) in eight demonstration counties, including Los Angeles, to coordinate care for Medi-Cal and Medicare dual eligibles.

In Los Angeles County, dual eligibles will have medical, behavioral health, long-term services and supports (LTSS), such as nursing facility care, IHSS, Multi-purpose Senior Services Program (MSSP), and Community-based Adult Services (CBAS), coordinated through one of the five State-selected local health plans: Care 1st, CareMore, L.A. Care, Molina and Health Net.

CCI includes two parts:

  • Mandatory enrollment into Medi-Cal Managed Care of all current Medi-Cal beneficiaries, in order to receive their long-term care benefits, including In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS).
  • Optional enrollment of Medicare beneficiaries, who also receive Medi-Cal benefits (dual eligibles), into Managed Care for all their Medicare benefits. This part of CCI is named Cal MediConnect. Dual eligibles may choose to stay in traditional Medicare (fee for service) and enroll in Managed Care for only their Medi-Cal benefits.
