I’ve called both DMAS and CDCN about problems clocking in/out for my sons attendants. I was also emailing both entities- so much do that I have a specific name and number of a person at DMAS. This system is intrusive to the disabled person. Asking if the attendant was at the persons residence is non if your business. Expecting location services to be active ON THEIR PERSONAL phone is intrusive. How dare you want to know the whereabouts?  Court decided I’m good enough to be the guardian and make decisions so who are you to question what we do?  Paper or online timesheets served their purpose and were not intrusive. Our disabled people deserve the same respect non disabled people get.
