Update on the new Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

Have you heard about the new Electronic Visit Verification, better known as EVV? A new federal law requires that all states have an electronic system for verifying attendant care services, called Electronic Visit Verification (EVV).

EVV will be used by Personal Support Workers (PSWs) for tracking their time, hours and in-home services. PSWs will be using eXPRS Mobile-EVV to track their work time on their smart phones or tablets. The State will be launching this application for smartphones and laptops in July. 

We will get out all current information to you as soon as it is given to us. There will be orientation classes coming up in all counties to assist with the EVV and we will post the dates, times and locations once they are scheduled.

You can call Erika or Tawny @ the SORB Administrative office for more information.  541.672.9140.

There is also a link to Frequently Asked Questions about EVV:
