For non-live-in Providers - new check-in and check-out of work requirement

Starting July 1, 2023, all non-live-in Providers of IHSS and Waiver Personal Care Services (WPCS) must use the EVV system to check-in at the start of their workday and check-out at the end of their workday from the location where services are provided. 

Note: This requirement does NOT apply to live-in Providers or any IHSS Recipient.

For non-live-in IHSS Providers

  • EVV confirms your location at check-in and check-out when you select “Home”. Your location is NOT tracked throughout the day.
  • If you provide both IHSS and  WPCS services, you’ll need to check-in and check-out for each program seperately.
  • The EVV system has been updated to ensure compliance with this federal requirement.
