Electronic Visit Verification
As part of the 21st Century Cures Act, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is requiring states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system. This page describes the Michigan Medicaid EVV impact on different populations, programs, and helpful resources.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is reviewing all options available for the implementation of an EVV system for personal care services in Michigan, including applying for a good faith effort exemption from CMS. Should this exception be granted, MDHHS would have until January 1, 2021, to implement EVV for personal care services. The Cures Act requires states to implement EVV by January 1, 2023, for home health care services.
MDHHS continues to urge caregivers, providers, and beneficiaries that no action is required at this time. Please continue to check this website frequently for updates and changes.
