Going out caroling this winter season? Here’s a new jingle you can sing to your representatives, state Medicaid departments and fiscal intermediaries!
Stop EVV is calling for a federal ban on the use of GPS and biometrics in all EVV systems nationwide!
Help us protect the privacy of disabled Americans and their personal care attendants.

The Cures Act requires states implement EVV by January 1, 2020. These EVV systems are required to identify the:
- type of home care service provided
- location of services
- start and end times
- individual receiving the services
- individual providing the service
Some states have used electronic visit verification (EVV) systems to violate the civil rights of people with disabilities and their personal care attendants. Federal law does not require GPS or biometrics (such as voice recording, eye scans, fingerprint scanning, photography, etc). Some states are using EVV systems to create barriers to care, which directly places disabled people in grave harm and threat of institutionalization.
