Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a telephone and computer-based tracking system. It helps to ensure that in-home service visits occur by tracking the time services begin and end. EVV is required for certain home and community-based services.
Request a Small Alternative Device
In order to use EVV, your attendant may use your home landline telephone number to call a toll-free number. If you do not have a landline or do not want your attendant to use your home phone, you may request a small alternative device (SAD) to be installed in your home. To request a SAD, please fill out the Small Alternative Device agreement. Once you complete this form, it should be submitted to the provider agency.
