EVV State Guide

EVV State Guide

Stay up to date on the latest EVV news

In December 2016, the 21st Century Cures Act was signed into law mandating all Medicaid Provider Service Agencies must require Electronic Visit Verification by January 2019. That date has then been delayed to January 2020 under Trump’s new bill. States that do not implement a system for personal care services that accept government reimbursements by 2020 will face an escalating reduction in FMAP funding.

Select your state below for the latest EVV updates and news. Deadlines and regulations are always changing, if you have any questions please contact us or your state medicaid program for more information.
