The suggested regulatory language explicitly exempts respite services provided by a Department of Behavior Health and Development Services (DBHDS) licensed provider in a DBHDS licensed program site such as a group home, sponsored residential home, supervised living, supported living or any similar facility/location licensed to provide respite. This is due to the fact that EVV is not intended to be used to verify service provided at a location other than an individual’s home. Procurement, implementation and use of such a system by a provider who does periodic service within their regular program setting, would be sufficiently burdensome to prompt the elimination of the service.
