Medicaid Starting New EVV System for Home Care Workers October 1

Effective October 1, 2019, all home care workers will be required to electronically check-in before the start of their shift, and also electronically check-out at the end of their shift. These electronic check-ins/check-outs must be done via an app on a smart phone OR through the use of a landline (i.e. traditional phone jacks at a home/location). The use of paper timesheets, websites, and cell phone calls to submit time will not be allowed. Each of the 3 fiscal agents that process time worked and issue payments to home care workers have different EVV apps. If you work for more than one consumer, and your consumers have different fiscal agents, you will need to use more than one app.
