Promoting and protecting the health and safety of all Idahoans

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Information

Section 12006 of the 21st Century CURES Act mandates states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) System for all Personal Care Services (PCS) and home health services that require an in-home visit by a provider. All states must require EVV for PCS providers by January 1, 2020, and for home health by January 1, 2023.

EVV Requirements

The system must capture the type of service performed, the individual receiving the service, date of the service, location of service delivery, individual providing the service, time the service begins and ends.

As part of the implementation process, states must seek input from: Family caregivers, individuals receiving and furnishing PCS or home health, and other stakeholders.

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Utilization Survey

Section 12006 of the 21st Century CURES Act requires that states implement minimum Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) standards for Medicaid providers that furnish Personal Care Services and other related Home and Community-Based Services. 

The EVV Project Team is collecting information from interested stakeholders to determine an estimated number of providers utilizing EVV, the platforms being used throughout the state, as well as general demographic information. If you are a provider that is currently using EVV and/or will be impacted by the implementation of EVV as outlined in the 21st Century CURES Act, we encourage you to complete the survey and provide your feedback. The survey will be available until April 30, 2019. Stakeholder engagement is important to us and will be utilized as Medicaid determines our approach to implementing an EVV solution in Idaho.
