CMS Offers Webinar for States on Leveraging EVV

Share this page

The implementation process for electronic visit verification (EVV) has been a longtime concern for ANCOR. With the EVV requirement now in effect for any state which has not obtained a good-faith implementation delay, we are sharing this notification about a webinar from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the issue. Members unsure if their state received a good-faith implementation delay can verify CMS’ regularly updated list of states with approved and pending delays.

As announced by CMS:

Leveraging Electronic Visit Verification to Enhance Quality Monitoring and Oversight in 1915(c) Waiver Programs Webinar 

The 21st Century Cures Act requires states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) solution to verify delivery of personal care services (PCS) by January 1, 2020, and home health care services (HHCS) by January 1, 2023. This webinar will cover the purpose and functions of an EVV solution and strategies for using EVV to improve waiver program quality monitoring and oversight.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will discuss how states may leverage their EVV systems, including the data collected through those systems, to enhance existing fiscal and program integrity processes. Specifically, CMS will review areas of billing validation, financial accountability, service delivery oversight, participant health and welfare, and other general considerations for states as they integrate their EVV solutions with quality monitoring efforts.

Join the webinar: February 12, 2020 from 1:30pm – 3:00pm EST.
