Kansas AuthentiCare/Electronic Visit Verification(EVV) will begin for all waiver services including Personal Services and Sleep Cycle Support for the Physically Disabled(PD) and Traumatic Brain Injury(TBI) waivers effective Sunday, March 4, 2012.

Please make certain that RCIL (or your FMS provider) has your correct telephone and/or cell phone numbers. Please report any updates to an RCIL EVV Specialist at 1-877-929-7655. See the instructions below to utilize the EVV system and check out our KS AuthentiCare/EVV FAQ page.

EVV Instructions

For your DSW to check in and out there are important things for you to remember:

  1. When your DSW arrives at your home they need to check-in each day by calling 1-800-903-4676 from YOUR home telephone or cell phone. NOTE: The sleep cycle support option will have changed from #1 to #2. The DSW will need to select from the list of services available.
  2. Before your DSWs leave your home they need to check-out each day by calling 1-800-903-4676. The DSW will need to enter the activity code of the services performed.
  3. While it is a good idea for you and your DSWs to keep your own written record of the hours worked, your DSWs will not turn in a paper timesheet to RCIL for time worked starting on Sunday, March 4, 2012 and thereafter.
  4. By State policy you MUST allow your DSWs to use your home phone or cell phone for the EVV process. If, for whatever reason, this does not occur, corrective action may be taken including the termination of your right to self-direct your care or closure of services.
  5. If you do not have a phone in your home or a cell phone, you may be eligible for reduced monthly phone service through the Kansas Lifeline/Link Up Telephone Service. To find out if you are eligible, you may contact your local telephone company or call 1-888-641-8722 for more information. If you receive a phone through Kansas Lifeline/Link UP, please contact RCIL at 1-877-929-7655 to report your new phone number and it will be entered into the EVV system.

RCIL has a longstanding history of providing superior customer service and superb payroll services. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and support you in self-directing your services. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the payroll help desk between 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday–Friday at 1-877-929-7655 to speak with an EVV Specialist.

The State of Kansas has delayed the start of the KS Authenticare (also known as electronic visit verification or EVV) for “Personal Services” through the PD and TBI waivers.

We will notify you with the new start date as soon as we receive it from the state. EVV for “Sleep Cycle Support” will start on January 9, 2012.

RCIL’s conversion to weekly payroll will continue as planned. Time worked between January 1 – January 7 is due by the end of business on January 9 and every Monday thereafter. Any timesheets received after Monday will be processed with the next week’s payroll. For example, if you turn in a timesheet for Jan. 1- 7 on Jan. 9, you will get paid on Jan.20. If timesheets are received after Jan. 9, the earliest pay date would be Jan. 27.

Questions? Call the RCIL payroll help desk between the hours of
8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday – Friday at 1-877-929-7655 and select option #2 to speak to an EVV Specialist.

KS Authenticare (EVV) will start on January 9th for all other waivered services (FE, TA, DD) and sleep cycle support for the PD and TBI waivers.

KDOA and SRS announced on the evening of  Dec. 29th they have decided to change the launch date for Kansas AuthentiCare/EVV to January 16, 2012 at 6:00am


The new year is bringing with it new procedures for our consumers who are on Home and Community-Based Services. The state is replacing the current paper time and attendant worksheet (timesheets) with an electronic verification and monitoring system known as Kansas AuthentiCare (also known as EVV).

KS AuthentiCare is a requirement for all Home and Community-Based Service (HCBS) consumers and Direct Support Workers (DSWs). On January 9th, 2012 your DSW will be required to start using the new telephone system. Please make certain that RCIL, or your FMS provider, has your correct telephone and/or cellphone number.

On January 9th, 2012 (or the first visit after January 9th) there are important things for you to remember:

  1. When your DSW arrives at your home they need to check in each day by calling 1-800-903-4676 from your home telephone or cellphone (See enclosed check -in/check -out instructions). The DSW will need to select from the list of services available (Service Codes included with this letter).
  2. Before your DSWs leave your home they need to check out each day by calling 1-800-903-4676. They will need to enter the activity code of the services performed (Activity codes included with this letter).
  3. Your DSWs need to complete paper timesheets for January 1, 2012 to January 8, 2012 and send to the Osage City office. This will be their last paper timesheet.

To help you prepare for this transition, the Resource Center for Independent Living will have training calls from 1:00pm to 2:00pm on January 3rd, 4th, and 5th. You are welcome to call in and listen to the trainings by conference call. Please pick a day that works best for you.

  • Conference dial-in number: (712) 432-0900
  • Participant access code: 324384

As part of this change we will be moving from semi-monthly to weekly payroll. RCIL has a longstanding history of providing superior customer service and superb payroll services. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and support you in self-directing your services. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the payroll help desk at 1-785-528-5045 and ask to speak to an EVV Specialist.
