CMCS is issuing this informational bulletin in accordance with section 12006(b) of the 21st Century Cures Act (the Cures Act)1 in order to assist states in implementing electronic visit verification (EVV) systems for Medicaid personal care services (PCS) and home health care services (HHCS). The Cures Act requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to collect and disseminate best practices to State Medicaid Directors with respect to (1) training individuals who furnish PCS, HHCS, or both, on the use and operation of EVV systems and on the prevention of fraud with respect to the provision of PCS or HHCS; and (2) the provision of notice and educational materials to family caregivers and beneficiaries with respect to the use of EVV systems and other means to prevent such fraud. This bulletin shares strategies related to EVV training and education for providers and other stakeholders, including beneficiaries and family caregivers, along with other factors that states, the District of Columbia, and US territories (collectively referenced in this bulletin as states) should consider when implementing EVV.
