Editorial Calls for Increased Oversight of IHSS Program
Â A San Diego Union-Tribune editorial argues that "because the county has so few people tracking [the In-Home Supportive Services] program's caregivers and patients, billing amounts to an honor system." It adds, "This should not be the status quo for a program that cost $305 million in 2009-2010." The editorial concludes that county leaders should take a recent report from the San Diego County grand jury on the program "seriously and work with state lawmakers to improve oversight."
