On May 16, CMS released Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) guidance for section 12006(b) of the 21st Century Cures Act for states and stakeholders in the form of an Information Bulletin (CIB) and FAQs.
Electronic Visit Verification is a method of reducing fraud and abuse by electronically tracking the exact date, start and end times, and location of a visit. Under the 21st Century Cures Act, states are mandated to adopt EVV requirements for stakeholders that provide Medicaid-funded personal care and home health services or risk a reduction in their Federal Medicaid Assistance Percentages. With the January 1, 2019 compliance deadline quickly approaching, states have been anticipating clear guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The CIB details background on the implementation models, identifies strategies for implementation, and shares promising practices to ensure proper training for users, which is also mandated within the Cures Act. The FAQs offer comprehensive responses to 25 important questions posed to CMS since the 21st Century Cures Act was passed.
