Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

Section 12006 of the 21st Century Cures Act mandates states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) systems 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 state of Idaho filed a Good Faith Effort (GFE) extension with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and was approved, meaning EVV for PCS must be implemented by January 1, 2021.

EVV Requirements

The EVV system must be compatible with the state’s aggregator and capture the following six data elements:

  1. Type of service performed;
  2. Individual receiving the service;
  3. Date of service;
  4. Location of service delivery;
  5. Individual providing the service;
  6. Time the service begins and ends

We plan to host a stakeholder update in December 2020. Please check back for WebEx details.
