The State of Connecticut Department of Social Services and Companions and Homemakers, Inc., and five other homecare providers, have reached an agreement over the implementation of the state’s electronic visit verification system in the Medicaid program.  The parties engaged in mediation before the Honorable Thomas Bishop and resolved all issues.  Companions and Homemakers, Inc. remains in the state Medicaid program to fully utilize the electronic visit verification system.  Currently, nearly 400 caregiver agencies are participating in the anti-fraud verification and customer service enhancement system.

Often, we could use your help to convince policymakers that a proposed initiative would be beneficial or detrimental to home care and our goal of allowing people to remain independent in their own homes.

We are planning on sending email alerts to let you know of these issues and what you can do to have your voice heard. Please enter your email address below to be added to our issue alert database.
