PASC – SEIU Homecare Workers Health Care Plan has been designed to provide much needed healthcare benefits for many IHSS workers in Los Angeles County who would otherwise be uninsured. Since the Plan’s implementation in April 2002, enrollment has grown to over 48,920 members, making it California’s largest medical benefits program for IHSS workers.
If you are enrolled in the Plan, you will be able to receive the following benefits through one of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services facilities.
Emergency Health Care
Durable Medical Equipment
Mental Health Services
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services
Home Health Care
If you decide to enroll in the Plan, it will cost you $1 per month. In addition, there are co-payments for some services such as visits to the doctor, prescription drugs, urgent, and emergency care. The co-payment for emergency care is waived if you are admitted to the hospital.
There are no co-payments for family planning, laboratory or inpatient services at an in-network facility or during a documented emergency.
