Community integration. Not with EVV

We were told the app would work anywhere, because attendants all have their own passwords to log in.  However, we discovered this was disinformation.  When in another state, the attendant was not able to log in to the app.  The attendant had to manually enter all hours upon returning home.  All of these manually entered hours, apparently, will be flagged.  The EVV requirements appear to be restricting community integration.  This is unfair to the waiver recipient as Dmas has stated that too many flags could result in a a loss of services.   This does not seem to be in compliance with the Olmstead Act.  Why was this misinformation put out there in the first place?
