Examine 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 this study controlled for client need, gender, and age, those 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.
