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.
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.
The Bureau of Long Term Care has an opportunity to evaluate Idaho Administrative Code (IDAPA) rules related to service plan and progress note documentation. As part of this effort, we would like to solicit your input from the provider perspective about potential changes to pursue.
Please join us for a facilitated discussion on February 25 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm!
We will present a brief overview of the nature of the changes we would like to propose and then review the applicable sections of IDAPA, which are Sections 329 and 330 of IDAPA 16.03.10, “Medicaid Enhanced Plan Benefits.” In advance of this meeting, we encourage providers to review these sections of rule: https://adminrules.idaho.gov/rules/current/16/160310.pdf#page=102
During the meeting we would like your recommendations on changes to consider that streamline and modernize the service plan and progress note documentation, and make these sections of IDAPA easier to understand and apply.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, there will be additional opportunities for public comment, including negotiated rulemaking meetings and public hearings, later this year.
This meeting will be a Webex and all the information for joining is listed below. You do not need to register, just log on February 25th @ 10:00 am to join the discussion.
