The 21st Century CURES Act, signed into law on December 13, 2016, requires states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system for Personal Care Services (PCS) by 1/1/19 (extended to 1/1/20) and for Home Health Care Services (HHCS) by 1/1/23. The Act simply stipulates that EVV systems must verify the type of service performed, the individual receiving the service, the date of the service, the location of the service delivery, the individual providing services, and the time the service begins and ends.

Providers have various options for compliance with different levels of complexity. Various states have made decisions or are in the process of doing so. Many providers are concerned about what EVV will be like: Will it create a lot of extra work in our already busy days? Should I go with what my state offers for “free”?

Read the white paper to help understand the different options home care operators have, the pros and cons of each, and why MatrixCare is uniquely equipped to not only power your operations but also ensure compliance with minimal disruption to your workflows.

We believe providers are best served when they can focus on providing the best care to their clients while strategic vendors such as us continue to carry the technological and compliance needs.
