The In-Home Support Services (IHSS) Anti-Fraud Plan is a collaborative, multi-strategic initiative designed to augment prevention, detection, referral and investigation of fraud through an integrated approach to program integrity efforts. The plan was developed by the Department of Public Social Services in partnership with the District Attorney and State Investigative Section.Recognized by the state as a model in innovation and best practices, the plan includes: 1) a front-end verification review process, 2) a public assistance crime enforcement team, and 3) rigorous and enhanced quality assurance reviews incorporating specific IHSS error prone profiles. Since the plan's implementation, more than 1,000 fraud referrals have been completed, and nearly 100 individuals have been convicted, involving nearly $2 million in fraudulently obtained funds. The project has also successfully operated under budget. It has also helped to strengthen relationships between agencies.
