DirectMyCare Web Portal
DirectMyCare.com is CDVA’s secure website for Clients, Attendants, EORs, and Service Facilitators.
- Clients and EORs should register for DirectMyCare.com once the “Welcome Letter” has been sent.
- Attendants can register for DirectMyCare.com once the “Enrollment Confirmation letter” has been sent.
Registering for DirectMyCare.com too soon before paperwork has been processed may cause a delay with registration.
To be eligible for sick leave, an Attendant must:
- Work an average of 20 hours per week or 90 hours per month.
- Have all time worked approved by the EOR no more than 20 days after the end of the quarter.
If the Attendant meets these criteria, they will earn one hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked. Any Attendant with unused sick leave at the end of the fiscal year may carry over up to 40 hours into the next fiscal year. Attendants may continue to use these hours during the eligibility process.
Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)
All Attendants who are not live-in exempt (LIE), must comply with EVV. Non-LIE Attendants must use the CellTrak app or the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system to submit their time to remain in compliance with EVV. Failure to remain EVV-compliant could result in action being taken by the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS).
