EVV Required Under Federal Mandate

The 21st Century Cures Act mandates many changes that affect health care providers and recipients. DCI can help you comply with these mandates, one of which requires electronic visit verification (EVV) systems be used for all Medicaid-funded services. Staying ahead of the curve is essential for your record-keeping, effective operations, and federal compliance.

Along with the Cures Act's allocation of funds for medical research, programs for opioid crises and mental health treatment came a new mandate for service providers. Section 12006 of the Cures Act requires agencies to use electronic visit verification for all Medicaid-funded personal care services by January 1st, 2019. By January 1, 2023 the mandate extends to Medicaid-funded home health services as well.
Electronic Verification  
Congress has recognized the value of EVV in reducing errors and certifying quality of care. DCI offers a web and mobile-friendly EVV application for providers of personal care and health care in homes and community settings. Our system can be implemented by agency employees or by private caregivers. Features include tracking of travel time, location tracking, employee shift tracking, bio-metric verification and even a double verification for both the client and worker to ensure the right services are being administered. 

Protect Federal Funding 

Anyone who isn't using an EVV by the deadlines will lose a portion of their federal match for Medicaid funding. If you are not already using an EVV, it behooves you to become familiar with this technology as soon as possible. Our  software is already built, tested, and proven; both simple to use and customizable for different healthcare providers.
