  1. If nothing else, there is the co-ordination clause of who pays first, so you don’t get double payments.

    Eligibility and Application

    If you are a California resident, live in your own home, and get Medi-Cal benefits, you may be eligible for IHSS if you need the services it provides to stay safely in your own home as an alternative to out-of-home placement. To learn more about qualifying for Medi-Cal, see DB101’s Medi-Cal article.

    If the application asks about other benefits, just answer to the best of your ability.
