How to Become an Independent P3 Provider
Go onto your TEACH account. Home Page -> Account Information -> Certificates and print out your internship/initial certification.
The second piece of documentation that you need is a W-9 form. You can access the form and instructions here
Fill it out and fax it to: (718) 935-3801 with a cover sheet stating: ATT: W-9 (or you can include it in your email to Ms. Veneka that is discussed in #4 below)
On the W-9 form, for entity type, select “individual/sole proprietor” However, if you are a current employee of the NY Board of Ed (i.e. work in a public school), then entity type is “city of NY employee” and you will need a waiver to provide P3 services.
Access an Independent Provider Application here and complete it
Scan and email your proof of certification and your completed Independent Provider Application to [email protected]. In your email to Ms. Veneka, ask to be registered in PETS and include that you were already fingerprinted at MorphoTrust/Identogo and would like to transfer your fingerprints to New York City. If you previously fingerprinted by NYC Board of Ed-which is at 65 Court Street Only (this option is no longer available), your email should state that you already have fingerprinting with NYC and you need to be registered with PETS.
You will receive a reply email from Ms. Veneka. Follow all instructions that are included there. If you fingerprinted with MorphoTrust/Identogo, then you should receive an OSPRA form to complete to transfer your fingerprints from NYS to NYC.
You will receive an email informing you that you have been activated in the PETS system.
In addition, you will receive an email with a username and password that will allow you to activate the SESIS system – which will allow you to view your students’ DOE information (including their IEP).
Get the child’s P4/SETSS form from the parent, fill it out and send it in to the address listed. (You are a NYS certified teacher for students with disabilities. Be sure to keep a copy of the form, in case it gets lost in the mail.)
Register on the Vendor Portal. Once you see on SESIS that the child has been entered into your caseload, you can begin creating invoices. Please note that you can only bill at the end of the month.
If you would like to get paid by direct deposit (which saves you $3.50 per check), please click on this link for more information.
