What is EVV?

EVV is Electronic Visit Verification. This is a provision within the federal 21st Century Cures Act, which was signed by President Obama. The Act sought to bring innovation and quality assurance to patient care, including having states implement an EVV system for Personal Care Services (PCS) by Jan. 1, 2019 and for Home Health Care Services by January 1, 2023. EVV is a form of technology that tracks the beginning and end of a nurse’s and home health aide’s visit to the consumer’s residence. He or she will use a mobile app or landline system to record details of the visit. Information specifically tracked is the consumer; date and location; who the caretaker is; and the time of the visit and when it concludes.

What problem(s) does EVV solve?

It’s expected that this will reduce fraud and abuse, and assist with billing, compliance and quality assurance. It will also assist providers with consumer records and work schedules. 

What is the deadline for me to implement an EVV solution?

The deadline to implement EVV is Jan. 1, 2019 for Personal Care Services and Jan. 1, 2023 for Home Health Care Services.

What are the various types of EVV Models out there?

Provider Choice ModelThe state requires the provider community to select, implement and pay for the EVV vendor they choose. 

MCO Choice Model: The state requires the MCOs to select, implement and pay for the EVV they choose. State Choice Model: The state Medicaid program contracts with a single EVV vendor and mandates that all Providers use that vendor’s EVV system. The State would directly oversee – this could be burdensome for NYS. 

Open Vendor Model: The Open Vendor allows the State to select the EVV vendor, and allows providers to use that vendor at no-cost, or continue using their current EVV vendor.
