New state screening procedures this year have led to thousands of people withdrawing as in-home care providers for the elderly and disabled, leading state officials to suspect that fraud and abuse has been rampant in the program. The state began this year requiring background checks and fingerprinting of qualified providers under the In-Home Supportive Services program, which helps the elderly and disabled receive care in their homes.
