EVV - Electronic Visit Verification

Electronic Visit Verification system (EVV) is a system that electronically captures details of home visits and services provided by caregivers while ensuring that beneficiaries are receiving the support they require and the rendered services are billed accurately.

21st Century CURES Act

In December 2016, Congress passed a federal law called the 21st Century Cures Act (PL 114-255) requiring State Medicaid programs to implement an EVV system for home and community-based services.  Under Section 12006 of the 21st Century Cures Act, all state Medicaid programs must implement an EVV system to verify personal care services by January 1, 2020 and an EVV system for home health services by January 1, 2023.  CMS is allowing states flexibility to implement EVV systems after the deadline if the state is showing a good faith effort at compliance.
