What is the IHSS Public Authority and what do we do?

The Public Authority was established per State mandate to act as Employer of Record for In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Care Providers. The Public Authority negotiates with the Provider's Union SEIU 2015 to set wages, benefits and working conditions for the IHSS Care Providers. The Public Authority also maintains a Provider Registry to help the IHSS Recipients find Care Providers so they can remain in their home safely and independently.

Become an IHSS Care Provider

IHSS Care Providers offer assistance to eligible aged, blind and disabled individuals to live safely and independently in comfort of their own homes. The IHSS provider is chosen by the client, and works in the client's home to do those tasks the client cannot do for themselves.

Learn how to become an IHSS Care Provider.

Join our IHSS Care Provider Registry

Our IHSS Care Provider Registry maintains a database of Care Providers that have been screened and trained by the Public Authority. The Provider Registry helps link IHSS recipients to providers. When an IHSS recipient asks for help to find a provider, the Public Authority matches providers in the Registry to the recipient's physical location, authorized tasks and work schedule. Since the recipient is the employer, the recipient will interview providers and make a decision on who they will hire. Recipients can also
fire a provider at will.

Overtime, Violations & The Dispute Process

As of July 2016, all timesheets submitted by IHSS providers are being evaluated for possible
violations. At this time, the IHSS Violations Team is calling and counseling providers when they
submit timesheets that receive a violation to help them understand the new rules. Each timesheet turned in for payment is evaluated to ensure that it meets the overtime rules.  If the timesheet does not meet the rules, the provider will receive a violation. For more information on overtime, violations, the dispute process please see Violations & Dispute Process

If you have questions about a violation, please call the Provider and Recipient Call Center (PARCC) at (559) 600-6666 option 4, and ask to speak to the Violations Team or call (559) 600-6666 option 3

Report IHSS Fraud

In-Home Supportive Services fraud is an intentional attempt by some providers, and in some cases beneficiaries, to receive unauthorized payments or benefits from the program. This fraud can take many forms, but the most common involves providers knowingly billing for services not performed, or providers billing for the care of more beneficiaries than they can actually serve.
If you observe or have knowledge of suspicious In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) activity, call the DHCS IHSS Fraud Hotline telephone number, 1-800-822-6222, to report it. The call is free and you can remain anonymous. You can also send an e-mail to The recorded message may be heard in English and ten (10) other languages including Spanish, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Armenian, Hmong, Cambodian, Laotian, Farsi, Korean, and Russian. 

Speak up! Join the IHSS Advisory Committee

Would you like to have a say in the care that you provide or receive? Or discuss issues and changes in the IHSS Program? By attending monthly IHSS Advisory Committee meetings you will have the opportunity to provide input from the perspective of the Care Provider and Recipient.
