In-Home Operations Waiver
The Department of Health Care Services administers the In-Home Operations Waiver (IHO Waiver). The IHO Waiver offer services in the home or in the community to Medi-Cal beneficiaries who would otherwise receive care in a skilled nursing facility. The level of care per waiver participant is determined by the Medi-Cal beneficiaries’ medical need and substantiated by a physician via a completed Plan of Treatment and a home evaluation. Some of the services offered by the two waivers are private duty nursing, case management, and waiver personal care services (WPCS).
