- Improving health outcomes by ensuring that the highest quality home and community-based services (HCBS) are provided to vulnerable citizens of Nevada;
- Ensuring timely HCBS service delivery for recipients including real-time service gap reporting and monitoring;
- Reducing Administrative burden for Nevada Medicaid providers;
- Reducing and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse in the Nevada Medicaid program.
Sandata, in partnership with the State, will begin EVV program implementation in late 2023 and expects to fully launch the EVV program by January 1, 2024. Updates will be provided to program stakeholders throughout 2023.
