Electronic Visit Verification Overview

What is EVV?

  • Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a technology solution which verifies information through mobile application, telephony, or web-based portal.

  • EVV is used to ensure that home or community-based services are delivered to people needing those services by documenting the precise time service begins and ends.

  • Section 12006 of the 21st Century Cures Act requires all state Medicaid agencies implement an EVV solution.

  • States that do not implement EVV will incur a reduction of Federal funding.

  • EVV is available for current use in Colorado and will be required beginning late summer 2020.
