Misconceptions about IHSS
IHSS program rules waive certain provisions of the Colorado Nurse Practice Act and Colorado Nurse Aide Practice Act to allow this service to be provided to people who otherwise would be living in a nursing home rather than independently, in their own residence.  A Registered Nurse provides oversight not actual care.
IHSS services will be allowed as a supplemental benefit for Medicare Advantage (MA) Plans in 2019 forward.

IHSS agencies are required to be licensed as home care agencies by CDPHE, and as licensed home care agencies, they must adhere to the standards of care established by the Colorado State Board of Health, which is located in CDPHE. The Medical Services Board, located in HCPF, is charged with adopting rules for the implementation and administration of IHSS for Medicaid reimbursement, which it has done. HCPF has delegated the monitoring of the standards of care to CDPHE.
An IHSS agency is different from other Class B agencies since it must contract with or employ a licensed healthcare provider, such as a registered nurse, to verify the skills and competencies of attendants. This is not necessary for other Class B agencies since they do not provide healthcare services.
