Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) White Paper

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:

  • Telephonic timekeeping,

  • Web, tablet, or phone-based applications using GPS verification,

  • Key FOBs with one-time passwords, and

  • Biometric sensors.

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.
