CareSmartz360 is a trusted partner for Indiana home care agencies looking to scale their operations while meeting state laws and regulations, including EVV standards.
Section 1903(l)(5)(A) states that the chosen system must be able to electronically verify for visits conducted as part of personal care services or home health care services for the following:
Section 1903(l)(2) also requires states to provide a stakeholder process to allow input into the state's implementation of the EVV requirement from PCS and home health services providers, beneficiaries, family caregivers, and other stakeholders.
IHCP releases updates related to the EVV implementation periodically. A survey was rolled out in April 2019 to develop a decision for helping agencies with the implementation deadlines. The survey also identified the types of EVV systems the home care businesses are using in Indiana, their preparedness, and their willingness to participate in a pilot. Training began in early fall 2019.
CareSmartz360 can be used as an EVV solution in Indiana. It offers simplified data migration, award-winning support and 1:1 training to make a shift from an existing EVV-compliant home care software.

No. Indiana laws require employers to pay only for the actual time worked. As a result, employers are not required to pay for personal days, sick days, or holidays.
Generally, home care workers are paid for the time worked under the direction and control of the employer. A worker who has to remain “on-call” at home is not considered to be working while “on-call.” However, if the home care worker remains “on-call” on the employer’s premises, they are considered to be working.
Employed caregivers in Indiana work an average of 34.7 hours a week.
