How to Become an Independent P3 Provider
Go onto your TEACH account. Home Page -> Account Information -> Certificates and take a screenshot of your internship/initial certification. (Windows+Shift+S or Shift+Command+3)
Follow the steps here to create a vendor account in the Payee Information Portal (PIP) and submit your W-9 form. At the end of the activation process, you can enroll in EFT (direct deposit).
Access an Independent Provider Application here and complete it.
Email the screenshot (see step 1) of 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 that you need to be fingerprinted by New York City. (If you previously fingerprinted by NYC Board of Ed 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.
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.)
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.
