EVV Model: Closed | Mandated System: AuthentiCare® | Implementation Deadline: October, 2017
The Alabama Medicaid Agency implemented an Electronic Visit Verification and Monitoring (EVVM) system to monitor visits to Home and Community-based Waiver Services clients on October 1, 2017. The EVV model integrated is AuthentiCare® that helps in service tracking, reporting, and billing for in-home care providers.
Governing Body: Alabama Medicaid Agency
EVV is still to be implemented in most of the states with different guidelines and regulations. We’re keeping up with the updates related to EVV implementation and if there is something we haven’t included, please share with us.

No, homecare agencies must use Authenticare as their EVV provider. It is closed state model. The State of Alabama will only pay for Medicaid services provided and verified in the AuthentiCare aggregator.
Under the new mandate, the EVV system must verify the following:
EVV allows verification of an employee’s location, hours of work for payroll and billing, visits being reported are actually taking place, and that the patients are getting the care they require.
Better care delivery, gapless communications, enhanced productivity of the staff, and automation of key processes are some other benefits of implementing EVV. It also helps to curb fraud and ensure transparency in care quality with continuous tracking and monitoring.
