I dont use smart phones ... so my client get to live in a nursing home I guess

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 in a high cost group home cause evv is very time consuming and messes up everyone’s time and pay... it 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.
