It appears there’s been a deadline change, regarding the implementation of Electronic Visit Verification, from the initial set time frame of 2019. And that can be good or bad — either way, the extended Deadline to implement EVV allows for a greater scope of accuracy and insight into a more thorough final projection and execution overall, of which one cannot complain.
Implement Electronic Visit Verification for Personal Care Services the right way, at the right time, and the people will hopefully see the positive difference in having a plan that’s been properly outlined and carried out. At least, that’s the goal….
And in further recent news on that note, it seems that, as of July of last year alone, U.S. President Donald Trump signed into law a very interesting bill. It was H.R. 6042, to be exact, the bill that supported the deadline extension in the first place. It was thanks to his signature that the extension has been granted.
And the extension affects both home care individual and care providers, along with state agencies alike. And to add, quite interestingly enough, it seems Republican Representative, Brett Guthrie from Kentucky, both sponsored and fully supported the pushback as well. Many account him as a great influencing contributor to the extension overall. The bill ultimately passed because it had no opposition from Senate or House. That was a major determining factor, as well, at the end of the day.
