If you hire a care provider referred by the Registry, notify the Registry at (707) 565-5700. Your referred care provider should have a document called a Provider Enrollment Agreement, or the Registry will send one to the provider. Fill it out together, and mail it to the IHSS Public Authority.
If you hire a care provider not referred by the Registry, call IHSS Payroll at (707) 565-2852 to have a Provider Enrollment Agreement sent to your care provider.
Please note that:
Once your care provider begins working, you are responsible for completing the enrollment process and signing their completed time sheets. Even if you dismiss the care provider later, you are responsible ensuring that the care provider is paid for hours worked.
Do not have your care provider work for you, and then decide not to enroll them. This is an unfair labor practice as the care provider will not get paid for work they have done.
