Electronic Visit Verification

Meeting Agendas & Handouts
2019 Meeting Schedule
Subcommittee Meetings

The 21st Century CURES Act, passed in December 2016, requires Medicaid programs to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system for Personal Care and Home Health services. Per section 12006, all states must implement an EVV system to avoid a reduction in federal Medicaid funding, which could have a negative impact on Personal Care and Home Health services received by Health First Colorado members.

What is EVV?

EVV is a system which includes multiple point-of-care verification technologies, such as telephonic, mobile, and web-based verification inputs. The system electronically verifies the occurrence of home- or community-based service visits, identifying the precise time that service provision begins and ends to ensure accurate claims disbursement.

Benefits of EVV System 

  • Greater opportunity for enhanced care coordination thereby promoting quality outcomes. 
  • Reduce billing errors and improve payment accuracy.
  • Improve Health and Welfare of individuals by validating delivery of services.
