21st C. CURES Act Compliance
Use of an Electronic Visit Verification system (EVV) is a federal mandate beginning January 1, 2020. Service Providers who serve Members in the home must use EVV. Systems like these are used to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in the delivery of the care you receive. If service Providers do not use EVV, the state will lose federal funding. This federal funding allows the state to offer in-home services to qualifying Members.
WHAT IS EVV?
EVV is an electronic scheduling and billing system for in-home care Providers. It is internet-based and instantly provides information about the services Members receive. Providers create a record of services to be billed using the telephone. Providers can also use a smartphone app to create claims. EVV software verifies the caregiver is present in the home, records the service performed and compares it to approved services.
SERVICE TYPES THAT WILL USE EVV:
- Personal Care
- Case Management
- Transitional Case Management
- Advanced Supportive / Restorative Assistance
- In-Home Respite
- CD-PASS Personal Services Assistance
- Advanced Personal Services Assistance
- Various Therapies (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy)
HOW DOES THE EVV SYSTEM BENEFIT THE PROGRAM AND MEMBERS?
- EVV helps ensure health and safety through improved communication
- Use of an EVV service assures the state will receive the funding necessary to provide services, by reducing inappropriate billing
