Why does Va want to shut down the lowest cost services with evv impossibility?

i don't have a smart phone and at my clients home there isn't a landline.  we had to purchase a device for $80 and take it to a public WIFI site every other week then get back online somewhere to check time entries.  My client is likely to end up either with a higher cost service plan or a high cost group home cause evv is very time consuming and messes up on everyone's time and is sad Virginia didn't take a stand and support care providers and people with disabilities.  If you want to catch real fraud you should see what group homes and public school bill for services never provided.  I don't know why Virginia wants to shut down the lowest cost services.
