Deadline reinstated for signed In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Program Provider Enrollment Agreement (SOC 846)

Earlier this year, the State announced that providers who did not return the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Program Provider Enrollment Agreement (SOC 846) were no longer in jeopardy of being terminated from the IHSS program.

The State has now reinstated a deadline for the form. It must be signed and returned to your local county office by April 29, 2017. This deadline applies to all IHSS providers who were enrolled in the program before February 1, 2016 and have not yet turned in form SOC 846.

Providers who do not return SOC 846 by the deadline will no longer be eligible to work as IHSS caregivers as of July 1, 2017. In the event this happens, there are two ways a provider can be reinstated:

  • If the signed SOC 846 is postmarked on or before July 31, 2017, the provider will be reinstated and eligible for retroactive pay for hours worked during the month they were ineligible.
  • If the signed SOC 846 is postmarked on or after August 1, 2017, the provider will be reinstated. However, the provider will only receive pay for hours worked on and after the date the form was postmarked.

Avoid disruptions in your work and your clients’ care by making sure your signed form SOC 846 is postmarked by April 29, 2017. Click here for more information from the Department of Social Services, and here for SOC 846.
