The Case Management, Information and Payrolling System II (CMIPS II) tracks case information and processes payments for the California Department of Social Services In-Home Supportive Services Program, enabling nearly 400,000 qualified aged, blind, and disabled individuals in California to remain in their own homes and avoid institutionalization.
The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Case Management, Information and Payrolling System II provides modern web-based case management functionality and sophisticated processing of payroll. It includes over 50 interfaces for timely verifications and interactions.
CMIPS II includes a statewide Timesheet Processing Facility (TPF) in Chico, CA. Providers mail their timesheets to the TPF, when timesheets arrive at the TPF they are scanned into CMIPS II. The system provides centralized IHSS timesheet processing that automates time entry for about 800,000 timesheets per month. Counties can view timesheets to assist providers in resolving any timesheet issues and respond to provider inquiries regarding timesheet/payroll questions.
The purpose of the CMIPS II Project is to support the following In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) programs:
- Personal Care Services Program (PCSP)
- IHSS Plus Option Program (IPO)
- IHSS Residual (IHSS-R) Program
- Community First Choice Option (CFCO
These programs provide in-home personal care services to qualified aged, blind, and disabled Medi-Cal recipients. These services allow the recipients to stay at home and avoid institutionalization. The PCSP, IPO, IHSS-R, and CFCO Programs are administered by the CDSS Adult Programs Division (APD) who oversees operations in county welfare offices and public authorities distributed throughout all 58 counties in California. The WPCS Program is administered by the DHCS In-Home Operations (IHO) office. CMIPS II functionality supporting the DHCS-administered WPCS Program is limited to payroll claims processing.
Current Project Status
CMIPS II was fully implemented statewide when the last group of counties completed the rollout of the CMIPS II application on November 4, 2013. The CMIPS II project has transitioned to the Maintenance and Operations phase.
