Provider Intake to the Registry
The Registry is constantly recruiting new qualified providers. Providers can expand their opportunities for finding work by being listed on the Registry. If you are a provider and are interested in being placed on the Registry call (866) 351-7722 and request a provider application.
Upon completion and the return of the application to the Public Authority, the Registry will screen the applicant. This is described in the next section.
The safety and security of IHSS consumers is of the highest priority of the IHSS Public Authority. To take reasonable measures to protect consumers from harm, the Registry has taken steps to prescreen
potential providers before placing into the computerized listing. Home care providers on this listing must provide or complete:
Two positive personal or work references from non-relatives.
A valid Social Security card
A valid CA photo I.D.
An interview/screening with the Registry staff. This is an opportunity for the Public Authority to acquaint themselves with the provider. It is also an opportunity for the provider to share their work history, skills, training, and personal qualities that would make them a good home care provider.
All providers are required to disclose any history of criminal convictions on their Registry application.
Potential providers will be rejected from listing on the Registry for the following reasons:
Failure to disclose a previous criminal conviction on their application.
Any felony conviction.
Also any criminal violations that the Public Authority determines represent a threat to the health, safety, or personal rights of consumers .
Violation of Elder/Dependent or Child Abuse Criminal Laws or the demonstration of a pattern of suspected or substantiated Elder, Dependent, or Child Abuse
When an applicant passes the screening process, he/she will be accepted onto the Registry. He/she will receive a letter of acceptance. The provider will then be made available for job opportunities from the
Registry through matching with available and appropriate consumers.
