DETAILS

In response to new state regulations intended to prevent fraud, the CA Department of Social Services (CDSS) developed uniform statewide protocols for investigating fraud allegations in the IHSS context. Each county developed its own policies and procedures for how they will implement the protocols, but are the county practices legal? This training discusses factors that can trigger a fraud investigation, what counties can/can’t do during investigations, and what advocates and recipients can expect when faced with an IHSS fraud investigation.
