Way to go turning a 57k services plan into a 107k plan due to EVV

Since they added the having to enter address thing, we were trying to make a better effort to log in exactly right.  The attendant showed at 5:55 am. The client was having a tantrum. That went on for a while.  I had to help de-escalate the situation. I got everything settled which took an hour.  I really had to use the bathroom by then.  I realized I forgot to give the attendant the tablet to log in.  So, another irregular entry occurred.  We are working hard to transition to higher cost services.  So, there you go DMAS, you saved a lot of money by turning 57K services plan into a $107k plan due to EVV.  Group home and day support would have cost even more at $117K.
