The purpose of this form is for Consumer Directed Services (CDS) Employers residing in HHSC regions included in Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) to document their choice about EVV participation.

EVV is a telephone and computer-based system that documents the time your attendant starts and ends delivering services to you.

EVV will impact agency providers, Financial Management Services Agencies (FMSAs), and all CDS individuals who receive the following services:

  • residential habilitation and in-home respite services in the Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS) program;
  • in-home respite services and adjunct support services in the Medically Dependent Children Program (MDCP);
  • Primary Home Care (PHC) services as described in 40 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §47.3(20);
  • Community Attendant Services (CAS) as described in §47.3(3); and
  • Family Care (FC) services as described in §47.3(11).


When to Prepare

The FMSA presents the options for EVV participation to CDS Employers and obtains the CDS Employer's documentation of level of participation:

  • prior to the expansion date for those who reside in the HHSC areas of state in which the EVV is targeted for expansion; or
  • at the time an individual who resides in an EVV region initiates the CDS option.
