The 21st Century CURES Act, signed into law in 2016, requires that States set up an EVV system to verify that services for all Medicaid-funded personal care and home health care services occurred. Under the Act, an EVV system must verify the following service components:
Type of service performed;
Individual receiving the service;
Date of the service;
Location of service delivery;
Individual providing the services; and
Time the service begins and ends.
The new requirements for EVV will not change where and how these services are delivered. All states must implement EVV for personal care services by January 2020 and home health care services by January 2023.
