Electronic visit verification
The federal government will soon require some providers to use electronic visit verification systems to document that people are receiving the services that are billed to the state. The 21st Century Cures Act, Public Law 114–255 (PDF), signed in December 2016, requires providers of personal care, including personal care assistance (PCA) and some waiver services (beginning in 2020) and home health care providers (beginning in 2023) to use electronic visit verification to be eligible for full federal Medicaid matching dollars.
The Minnesota EVV system will verify:
- Type of service performed
- Who received the service
- Date of service
- Location of service delivery
- Who provided the service
- When the service begins and ends.
The method used for verification will depend on the EVV system chosen by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Providers may use either the state-provided EVV system or an alternative system of their choosing that meets state requirements.
