As part of the 21st Century Cures Act, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires 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 the individual(s) providing and receiving services. This information helps to ensure that beneficiaries, clients, or participants receive the expected care.
