What is Electronic Visit Verification?
The 21st Century Cures Act, which was signed into law in 2016, requires state agencies to implement a system of electronic visit verification (EVV) for personal care services and home health services provided and reimbursed under Medicaid.
EVV is a process that uses electronic means to verify care provider visits for personal or home health care services. The data collected during visits includes the date of service provided, the start and end time, the type of service performed, the location of the service performed, and the service provider.
