This letter is to inform you about the new regulation issued by the New York State Department of Health and Medicaid which is called "The 21st Century Cures Act".
According to this law, all Personal Care Aides, Home Health Aides and Personal Assistants must clock in and out at the start and at the end of their work shifts, when providing home care services to Medicaid patients.
If you are NOT clocking in and out, you must contact your Coordinator as soon as possible.
We will gladly provide training to you how to clock in and out or will help to install a mobile app on your cell phone that you also can use to clock in and out when at work.
Please note that beginning January 1st, 2021, we will stop accepting paper time sheets.
If you do not clock in and clock out, it may interfere with our payroll processing and, consequently, will delay your weekly pay.
We strongly encourage you to begin clocking in and out before January 1st, 2021.
If you need any information how to clock in and out or use the mobile app for work, please feel free to call our office at 347-492-5982 and speak to your Scheduling Coordinator or HR Department.
Thank you for your time and collaboration.
