In December 2016, the 114th U.S. Congress enacted the 21st Century Cures Act. Section 12006 of the Act requires states to implement Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for Medicaid-financed Personal Care Services and Home Health Care Services by January 1, 2019 and January 1, 2023, respectively, to avoid an escalating reduction in their federal match.
Sandata Technologies LLC, a national leader in delivering EVV solutions, enlisted HMA’s Karen Brodsky, Barbara Butler-Moore, Anh Pham, and David Rogers to survey states about their awareness and familiarity with the components of the Cures Act, EVV deployment models, and where states are in the process of implementing an EVV solution to meet the mandate.
The attached report is a summary of key findings from the survey.
