Does your IHSS client need more hours of care? Did they recently receive a Notice of Action (NOA) that their hours are being cut? Your fellow UDW members are here to help.
Our advocacy councils—made up of IHSS providers like you—regularly conduct in-person and online advocacy workshops to help caregivers and clients navigate the appeals process and win more hours of care. And, if you go through the appeals process and win, you may be entitled to backpay: from several hundred dollars up to $30,000.
To learn more about advocacy and get help with your client’s hours, call your local office or visit our advocacy training here.
UDW members can also use our online advocacy tool through the IHSS Help app, which will walk you through each step of the appeals process and help you calculate an estimate of what your client’s hours should actually be. Download it here.
