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.

Upcoming Meetings

The next Stakeholder Meeting is expected to be hosted in February 2019. Email EVV@dhw.idaho.gov with questions or to join
