Expand All | Close All

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a telephone and computer-based system that electronically verifies that service visits occur and documents the precise time service provision begins and ends.

No, EVV does not require individuals/members to get a home landline phone. If you do not have a home landline or you do not want your personal attendant to use your home landline, a small alternative device will be ordered and installed in your home for your personal attendant to use to clock in and out.

No. The use of the individual's/member's personal cell phone is not allowed and your attendant should never ask to use your cell phone to call in and out.

Note: The only exception to cell phone use is if you are a Consumer Directed Services (CDS) employer. Please see the CDS FAQs for more information on cell phone use under the CDS option.

Yes. The use of EVV does not change the way and location in which services are delivered. Individuals /members will be allowed to receive services in accordance with their service plan and existing program rules.
