What is health certification?

As of August 1, 2011, Health Certification, by a Licensed Health Care Provider, must be established. Your health care provider will need to certify that you are unable to independently perform one or more activities of daily living and to verify that one or more IHSS services is required in order to prevent out of home care. The certification document will be mailed to you in the IHSS application packet.
