3 Expert Tips for Applying for In-Home Supportive Services
Your child needs in-home support, but how do you know whether your child qualifies for public assistance, and what should you do if your application gets denied? On April 7, 2022, we met with our Public Benefits Specialist, Lisa Concoff Kronbeck, to learn more about Medi-Cal’s In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program for kids ages 0-18. Here are the top takeaways from our live event to help you prepare your application like a champ!
Don’t let a phone call discourage you from applying
Prepare for the in-home visit
Be honest and accurate when describing your child’s needs
We’re grateful to Lisa for sharing her expert tips and to all the parents who participated in our live discussion about IHSS. Angelica G. commented in the chat, “I always have this feeling that I’m taking advantage of something I don’t need because it is my son and I am his mother.”
Iris B. responded, “Angelica, thank you so much for sharing this because I know so many of us can relate!”
