Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) technology is used to confirm that home- and community based services (HCBS) are delivered to people who need those services. EVV encompasses a number of different technologies, including:
Web, tablet, or phone-based applications using GPS verification,
Key FOBs with one-time passwords, and
As part of the 21st Century Cures Act, which was enacted in December 2016 and subsequently amended, state Medicaid programs are required to implement EVV for all Medicaid-funded personal care services by January 2020, and for Medicaid-funded home health care services by January 2023. Noncompliant states will face FMAP reductions.
