Time & Expense FAQ

The following directions are for providers using the Time & Expense system. It is broken into the following categories:

Initial Setup:

Providers who have completed the initial application will receive an email generated from our system that will provide you with a user name and link to set up your password.

Follow the link to set up your password. You can change the suggested password to one of your choice. Please choose something memorable yet still complicated enough that someone can not guess it. Do NOT use: pass123, myname, or anything easily guessable. Do USE lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers and symbols if possible. Tip: Browsers like Google Chrome can suggest a password for you.

Once you have set up your password you will be directed to the new Provider Portal OR you can navigate to https://ihcl.com and click the Login button in the top right corner.
