Information for Caregivers About Criminal Background Checks

The IHSS program requires all providers be fingerprinted via Live Scan to complete a criminal background check through the State of California Department of Justice. State law requires the provider pay for the cost of the criminal background check and fingerprinting. Fees vary depending on the Live Scan fingerprinting location.
For your convenience, the IHSS Public Authority offers Live Scan fingerprinting services:
• Monday – Friday, 9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.
• Cost is $47.00 payable by cash or money order.
• Pre-printed forms for fingerprinting are provided at our office.
A list of other Live Scan fingerprinting locations is available below. The pre-printed form for fingerprinting is also available below if you choose to be fingerprinted at any location other than the IHSS Public Authority.
