EVV Issue Alert on Managing Imperfect Shifts

The wrong EVV approach in self-direction could incite Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations resulting in penalties for payers, FMS entities, and/or participants, and risk creating joint employment. This alert describes the EVV approach that creates this risk, outlines the risk of FLSA violations and joint employment, and describes alternate approaches for both FMS entities and payers, including states and managed care organizations (MCOs).
