CA Welf & Inst Code Section 4689.05


A regional center shall not purchase supportive services, as defined in Section 12300, for a consumer who meets the criteria to receive, but declines to apply for, in-home supportive services (IHSS) benefits, as set forth in Section 12300, except as set forth in subdivision (d).


Consistent with Section 4648, a regional center shall not purchase supported living services for a consumer to supplant IHSS.


Between the date that a consumer applies for IHSS and the date that a consumer’s application for IHSS is approved, a regional center shall not purchase supportive services for the consumer at a rate that exceeds the IHSS hourly rate, which includes the IHSS provider hourly wage, the provider’s hourly payroll taxes, and the hourly administrative costs, for the county in which the consumer resides.


A regional center executive director may waive the requirements set forth in subdivision (a) if the executive director finds that extraordinary circumstances warrant the waiver, and that a finding is documented in an addendum to the consumer’s individual program plan.
