EOR phone and EVV

How dare DMAS suggest that EOR's use their phones to install the intrusive EVV app!  EOR's volunteer ALL their hours and their social security numbers, so that the state does not have to be financially responsible for attendants as employees! Many EOR's are not even related to the consumer with disabilities!  The majority of EOR's have one or two jobs or businesses to run.  How else could they volunteer? Now, the state is asking EOR's to use their personal phones to add a VERY INTRUSIVE app to it!?  EVV has already put a strain on EOR's to the point where some may be lost because of EVV!  DMAS is taking advantage of kind hearted people who have already given of their time and their valued socials and asking for MORE yet DMAS shows no compassion or kind heartedness themselves!
