Attention EVV Providers - Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) permitted states that anticipated being unable to meet the implementation deadline to submit a request for a Good Faith Effort Exemption (GFEE). A GFEE approval allows states to implement EVV for Home Health Care Services (HHCS) after the required deadline of Jan. 1, 2023, without CMS applying a Federal Medical Assistance Percentage legislated penalty. NC Medicaid submitted a GFEE request to CMS and was granted approval.
Timelines for implementation of EVV are noted below for each health plan below:
Please note: dates below will be adjusted due to Tailored Plan launch delay.
|Soft launch start||Hard launch start|
|NC Medicaid Direct (HHCS)||NCTracks + Providers||4/1/2023||8/1/2023|
|Tailored Plans (HHCS)||EPS + TPs + HHAExchange||10/1/2023||12/1/2023|
|Tailored Plans (PCS)||EPS + TPs + HHAExchange||10/1/2023||12/1/2023|
The 21st Century Cures Act (Section 12006a) and The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate that states begin utilizing an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system for Personal Care Services (PCS) that require an in-home visit by January 1, 2021.
More information about this mandate can be found here:
