Provider Enrollment

How to become an IHSS Provider

State laws require that all IHSS providers go through an enrollment process and pass a background check before they are eligible to be paid by the IHSS program. To enroll as an IHSS care provider, you must complete these steps:


Start the On-Line Enrollment Process by completing the following (make sure you read the 4 steps of enrollment before selecting "Start Enrollment")

  1. Create an account by selecting the "Continue To Enrollment" button below.  Make sure to write down your username, password and security questions (these are case sensitive)
  2. Watch the mandatory videos (you will need your security questions to watch the videos)
  3. Review the documents shown on the enrollment site (you will sign these at orientation)
  4. Schedule an enrollment completion appointment (this is done on the enrollment site)


Steps after your on-line enrollment is fully completed:

  • Attended your scheduled enrollment completion appointment. Bring these required items with you

    • Current valid drivers license or another US government issues photo ID.

    • Social Security Card  (note that your name on both ID's must match

  • Background Check

    • Take the completed Live Scan form (given to you at orientation or you can print from the enrollment site) and take to fingerprinting service. Fingerprinting is paid for by you and costs $48 - $80 (currently Goin Postal in Jackson is the only open facility. Appointments are required)

    • Keep the completed copy of the Live Scan form and your receipt for your own records

    • You must complete Public Authority and SEUI orientation.  You will be given dates of orientation when you come in to the office for your enrollment completion appointment

  • After completion of enrollment, a cleared background, PA & SEUI orientation, and a completed SOC426A that your consumer completes we can then start the payroll process to issue timesheets. Note electronic timesheets will be mandated as of July 1st, 2020

  • If you don't have a consumer and are signing up to become a Registry provider you will need to

    • Complete an Assessment

    • Complete Registry 101  (when both of these are completed you can start receiving referrals to consumers)
