Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)
In response to the federal 21st Century Cures Act, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is required to implement electronic visit verification (EVV) for Medicaid-covered personal care services and home health services. DHS has created a dedicated webpage where providers can view all current EVV information. Providers are encouraged to visit the webpage frequently.

Request for Proposals
DHS solicited proposals from managed care organizations (MCOs) interested in providing Family Care services in geographic service regions (GSRs) 5 and 6.
The solicitation for Family Care services in these GSRs has been challenged and is under judicial review. DHS may not proceed with the award of contracts under this procurement in these GSRs until the judicial review has concluded.
While that review proceeds, all currently available MCOs in these regions remain under contract with DHS. All aging and disability resource centers (ADRCs) in these regions should continue to provide objective information to members and potential members regarding the program options and MCOs that are currently available in their regions.
DHS will notify the ADRCs when the judicial review is completed.
