Can my IHSS worker take me to get my COVID vaccine?
Yes. IHSS recipients who have hours for medical accompaniment can use them to get COVID-19 vaccines. IHSS recipients who do not have medical accompaniment hours can get a one-time provider payment for up to two hours for accompaniment to get a COVID-19 vaccine. This can be applied retroactively to January 1, 2022 and is available until June 30, 2022.
To get this payment, providers must complete and submit the COVID-19 Medical Accompaniment Claim Form and have you (the recipient) sign the form. This medical accompaniment time cannot increase IHSS hours above the statutory maximum.
