Provider taking Blood Pressure


New Provider Timesheet Training!

Beginning May 2013 your IHSS home care provider timesheet will look different. Time will now be recorded in hours and minutes. All timesheets will be processed by the State Timesheet Processing Facility in Chico, CA. Timesheets which are not properly completed will be returned to the provider.

The presentation will show you:

  • how to record the hours you worked on the new timesheets
  • common mistakes people make when completing their timesheets
  • examples of right and wrong timesheets
  • what to do if you move or change your phone number
  • who to call if your paycheck is late
  • how to sign up for direct deposit
  • and much more

We also have a handout of Timesheet Do's and Don't in ENGLISH and SPANISH.

Please take a few minutes to view the timesheet presentations, which are available in English and Spanish.
