Different states are at different stages of adoption, meaning some programs already require this but other programs don’t yet.
PPL has over 20 years-experience in managing self-directed programs. If your state is requiring EVV adoption, PPL designed a tailor-made app for you to easily comply with the requirements of the Cures Act.
