In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Fraud

In-Home Supportive Services fraud is an intentional attempt by some providers, and in some cases beneficiaries, to receive unauthorized payments or benefits from the program. This fraud can take many forms, but the most common involves providers knowingly billing for services not performed, or providers billing for the care of more beneficiaries than they can actually serve.

If you observe or have knowledge of suspicious In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) activity, call the DHCS IHSS Fraud Hotline telephone number, 1-800-822-6222, to report it.

The recorded message may be heard in English and four other languages:
  • Spanish,
  • Vietnamese,
  • Cambodian
  • Russian.


The call is free and the caller may remain anonymous. You can also e-mail us at or on-line via our on-line complaint form at:
