Personal Care Services Utilization by Individuals with Developmental Disabilities
Harrington, Charlene; Kang, Taewoon
Family Relations, v59 n2 p136-151 Apr 2010
This study examined factors associated with the use of personal care services (PCS) and the amount of authorized hours in California in 2004-2005. Of those Medicaid-eligible individuals with developmental disabilities living at home, 31% received PCS. When we controlled for client need, gender, and age, individuals who were Asian/Pacific Islanders, African Americans, Hispanics, and other races had higher odds of receiving PCS than Whites but were authorized between 16 and 39 hours fewer than Whites.
