EVV is a federal law that requires electronic record of certain information about the IHSS services performed and is a condition of employment for all non-live-in providers.
There are no changes for LIVE-IN PROVIDERS. Providers who have completed and submitted the SOC 2298 form and live with their recipient(s), or Live-In providers, will continue to complete and submit their electronic timesheet to their recipient(s) for approval the same way they do today.
There are no changes for RECIPIENTS. Recipients will continue to review and approve their provider’s electronic timesheets the same as today. The EVV requirements do not change how recipient services are authorized or how recipients receive their IHSS services.
