No. People who have passed state requirements to be an IHSS worker can work as an IHSS home care worker or independent provider (IP) without being on the Public Authority Registry. To begin that process, go to the Enrollment Center at 77 Otis Street. The orientations are in the afternoon (Monday-Friday), starting at 12:40 p.m. Call (415) 557-6200 for more information.
