IHSS Program- Includes Relative Care!

IHSS enables consumers to have real choices in selecting, managing, and, if necessary, firing their attendants while still having the support of an agency, that can provide on-call, back-up services. The service is geared to individuals with severe disabilities who are on the Elderly Blind and/or Disabled (EBD) or Children’s Home and Community Based Services (C-HCBS) waivers. Attendants called Health Maintenance Attendants, (HMA’s) providing this necessary service do not have to be licensed as CNA’s, but receive training [initial and continuing] from an RN in the client’s home. See if you qualify here

Benefits and Services:

You will get your waiver’s benefits. If you qualify, you may be able to get assistance to help you remain in your home and community. This includes:

 

1. Help with health related needs such as catheter management, medication administration and equipment transfers, range of motion exercises, etc. 

2. Help with homemaker services such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and laundry

3. Help with personal care activities such as bathing, dressing, or eating

How it works:

You get to pick the IHSS Agency attendant who helps you with these tasks. All attendants providing IHSS must be employed by an IHSS agency. IHSS agencies provide 24-hour, 7-day a week back-up service in case your attendant can’t make it to your home.

 

You can pick an IHSS Agency attendant such as a friend or family member, to provide IHSS but there are some exclusions.

 

Family members can only be paid for up to 40 hours per week of personal care activities such as bathing, dressing, or eating. Your IHSS agency has a health professional available to help with any medical concerns you have.

Child Extensive Support Waiver (HCBS-CES)

The Home and Community-Based Children’s Extensive Support (HCBS-CES) Waiver is a Medicaid program which serves children who are less than 18 years of age and who have significant medical and/or behavioral needs. In order to qualify for the service, the child must demonstrate a medical or behavioral condition that is so intense that almost constant line of sight supervision is required to keep the child and others safe; the child must also be at high risk of out-of-home placement. The child must live in the family home and be determined to meet the Federal Social Security Administration’s definition of disability.

The CES Waiver does not allow the parent or guardian of the minor enrolled in the program to provide services under the waiver. A family member who is not a parent/responsible party can be paid to provide services to the child; the family member may or may not reside with the child. The family member wishing to provide services under the waiver must be at least 18 years old and willing to meet the Agency’s requirements for hiring and be hired on as an employee of the Agency.

If a child requires skilled nursing care such as CNA and home health services and meets the eligibility for those services, the services may be provided by a parent under Colorado Medicaid not under the waiver.
