Providers

The Public Authority is committed to making the provider enrollment process as simple and efficient as possible.

In order to begin working for an IHSS recipient, a provider must complete IHSS enrollment paperwork. The enrollment paperwork includes all of the forms needed to establish a Recipient-Provider IHSS 4relationship, including the Provider Enrollment Agreement (SOC 416), Recipient Designation of Provider (SOC 426A), and W4 form. State law also requires that all IHSS Providers undergo orientation and a background check using Live Scan fingerprinting.

  1. Enrollment Forms: Complete the Provider Enrollment Forms (SOC 426 and 426A). These will be included in your enrollment packet.
  2. Photo ID and Social Security Card: You must provide a valid photo ID (such as driver’s license) and social security card upon submission of your enrollment forms.
  3. Live Scan: Complete the Request for Live Scan Service form and make an appointment for Live Scan fingerprinting. A valid photo ID is required for Live Scan fingerprinting. If you choose to have your Live Scan done elsewhere, you must use the form provided to you by the Public Authority. We can provide a list of other Live Scan locations upon request.
  4. State Video Orientation: The IHSS orientation lasts approximately 90 minutes and is by appointment only. The Public Authority facilitates the orientation for El Dorado County providers at our Placerville office three times a month, and once a month in South Lake Tahoe.
