Electronic Visit Verification (EVV): Timeline

Current timeline for personal care services

Trainings: Start August 2020  Information about signing up for trainings will be provided in late July. Trainings will start in mid-August.

Soft launch: November 2, 2020

EVV will be required for all personal care services and applicable supportive home care services paid for by Medicaid from this date. Since the federal deadline for EVV has not shifted, DHS is moving forward with EVV to avoid funding penalties.

Hard launch: TBD

After the hard launch, fee-for-service personal care service claims will be required to have a matching EVV record. If there is no matching EVV record, the claim will be denied. HMO and MCO encounters that do not have a matching EVV record for personal care services or applicable supportive home care services may be excluded from future capitation rate development. IRIS policy regarding the hard launch will be provided at a later date. The hard launch date has not been set.
Last Revised: August 28, 2020
