Alliance Care In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS)
Alliance Care IHSS is a health plan for persons who provide in-home support services in Monterey County. The plan provides health coverage for eligible persons who are registered with the Monterey County Public Authority for In-Home Supportive Services (the Public Authority).
You must meet all of the following to be eligible:
- Meet minimum work requirements set by the Public Authority.
- Live or work in Monterey County.
- Not have been previously terminated by Central California Alliance for Health (the Alliance) for fraud, deception or failing to provide complete information.
The Public Authority will inform you when you are eligible to enroll in the plan and will provide you with an initial enrollment application. You must complete the application and return it to the Public Authority as soon as told to do so.
As an Alliance Care IHSS member, you have access to the health care and support services described in the Get Care section of this website.
Services must be obtained from a participating provider. Your doctor will need to get approval (called prior authorization) before providing certain services. Use the Provider Directory to find a doctor.
Once enrolled, you will be required to pay a monthly premium (cost). The Public Authority will tell you the amount of the premium you are responsible to pay and how to make a payment.
Please contact the Public Authority at 831-755-4466 (TTY: 831-784-2131) for more information about eligibility, enrollment, premiums and the start of coverage.
