MatrixCare Meets 21st Century Cures Act EVV Mandate for Home Care

The 21st Century Cures Act includes a wide range of measures intended to streamline the U.S. healthcare industry, bringing better, more efficient care to citizens. Among these measures, Section 12006 incentivizes all states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) solution to manage their Personal Care services by January 1, 2019, and for all other Home Healthcare services by January 1, 2023. Bill H.R. 6042 has been passed by the House and Senate and is awaiting presidential signature.  The bill would delay FMAP penalties for personal care services delivered without EVV to 2020.

EVV Requirements per Section 12006 of the CURES Act specifies EVV systems must verify:

  • TYPE of service performed
  • DATE of the service
  • LOCATION of service delivery
  • TIME the service begins and ends

MatrixCare’s mobile platform for Home Care is an EVV solution that allows caregivers to electronically “check-in” and “check-out” of each visit; recording the time, date, and location as determined by the GPS service on the caregiver’s phone or tablet. Caregivers digitally record information about the visit, including specific care or services rendered.

MatrixCare mobile platform improves Home Care program efficiencies by eliminating the need for paper documents to verify services, strengthens quality assurance by validating delivery of the services, and reduces potential FWA (Fraud, Waste, and Abuse) by validating services are billed according to the client’s individualized service plan and actual services delivered.
