IHSS consumers/recipients who get IHSS services also have Medi-Cal. Some of these consumers must pay a certain dollar amount each month toward their medical expenses. This dollar amount is called a Share of Cost (SOC). A SOC is similar to a private insurance plan's out-of-pocket deductible. Twice a month, both you and the consumer you work for will receive an "Explanation of IHSS SOC" letter that will tell you how much money to collect from the consumer, and how much you will get in the check from the State. The SOC is part of provider's salary. The consumer must pay the SOC, if any, to the provider monthly. The SOC may change from month to month.
Employment/Income Verification must be requested from the appropriate IHSS office (the office responsible for the consumer/recipient's case). Please call the assigned Provider Clerk.
