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 submitted an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Good Faith Effort exemption request to CMS, requesting a delay in the implementation of EVV for Personal Care services. On December 23, 2019, CMS granted the exemption request, delaying the implementation of EVV for Personal Care services until January 1, 2021. Implementation of EVV for Home Health Care services is not impacted by this exemption. EVV for Home Health Care services is to begin January 1, 2023.
There is currently pending legislation that would delay the required implementation date for the roll-out of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for Medicaid funded personal care services. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is currently focused on activities related to COVID-19. A timeline of when EVV will be rolled out in Michigan has not been established yet. Once it is determined we will post it on the EVV website and notify providers who will be impacted with sufficient notice to make necessary changes to comply with the EVV requirement.
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.
