What is the Provider Registry?
The Sacramento County IHSS Provider Registry is a database of specially screened caregivers who are looking to work for IHSS recipients/consumers. This is a free referral service available to all IHSS recipients. Please note, all IHSS providers are not part of the Provider Registry. The Registry has an application process separate from Provider Enrollment.
