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.

What is EVV?

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a validation of the date, time, location, type of personal care or home health care services provided, and individual(s) providing and receiving services. This information helps to ensure that beneficiaries, clients, or participants receive the expected care.

EVV in Michigan

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) 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. MDHHS will continue to keep caregivers, providers, and beneficiaries informed of all EVV updates and changes. No action is required at this time.

Please visit any of the links below for additional EVV resources and continue to check this website frequently for EVV updates and changes.
