It is less costly for someone to stay in their home than for Medi-cal to pay $3,000 or $4,000 a month for the cloent to go into long term care, however, there is a bunch of fraud.
Calm down, I have seen the fraud myself, when working with an Area Agency on Agfing contracted provder, as an IHSS caregiver, and as a citizen. So many people get the paychecks and “split” the money with the CAREGIVER that doesn’t do anything. Or, if a wife doesn’t qualify as a caregiver because she’s an immigrant or a felon, then a friend or family member gets paid for the work the wife dies and gives the money to the wife.
