Parent and caregiver

EVV- yet another way to hamstring and humiliate those of us who care for our disabled family member. We are  tied to a GPS tracker in order to claim hours we provide care for our son.. the hours still are not accurate as we provide 24 hour care and LOVE. I feel medicaid is working to decrease money spent on caregiving by making it very difficult to adhere to the EVV program tracker. They are saving money because of this, and that is the ultimate goal. It is also nearly impossible to find a new caregiver that wants to adhere to this ridiculous program. We do it because we are mandated to but it is yet another example of how difficult it is to obtain assistance for our son. Lots of pseudo assistance....
