Provider Enrollment

For instructions on how to enroll as an IHSS Provider please go to

State law requires that all IHSS providers complete the enrollment process and pass a fingerprint background check before they are eligible to be paid by the IHSS program.

IHSS Providers are hired by an IHSS Consumer who has been authorized for services after an IHSS social worker visit.  To apply for authorization of IHSS services visit the IHSS website, or call IHSS at (408) 792-1600 (Toll free: 1 (866) 668-2412).

 If an IHSS Provider wants to work (or work more hours) and you want help finding an IHSS Consumer that could hire you,  please apply to join our Registry.
