The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Program helps pay for services provided to low-income elderly, blind or disabled individuals, including children, so that they can remain safely in their own home. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities.
Some of the services that can be authorized through IHSS include: housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, personal care services (such as bowel and bladder care, bathing, grooming and paramedical services), accompaniment to medical appointments, and protective supervision for the mentally impaired.
Timesheet At-A-Glance (TAG) is an online system that allows IHSS providers to access information on timesheet activity. TAG provides information on the timesheet received date, if the timesheet was processed, the number of paid hours, and the amount paid. To log on to TAG, the provider will need his/her provider identification number, date of birth, and the last four digits of his/her Social Security Number.
