NILP wants you to know that MassHealth will be holding 2 listening sessions on Thursday, June 8, 2017, regarding the implementation of an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system.
MassHealth has presented this as a simple way to report time electronically. However, the EVV in the PCA (Personal Care Attendant) program is a huge advocacy issue as it will require all PCA consumers to have GPS verification and Time verification for all PCA hours.
Attend either of these listening sessions this Thursday, June 8th, at the Lawrence Public Library, 51 Lawrence Street, Lawrence, MA, at the 10:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. session or at the 12:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. session and to make sure that your voice is heard in regards to to these proposed changes!
