EVV Model: To be determined | Implementation Deadline: January 01, 2021
Michigan has received an exemption against good faith effort exemption request. CareSmartz360 is following the State of Michigan EVV model information as it becomes available.
As part of the 21st Century Cures Act, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is requiring states to implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system.
Governing Body: Michigan Department of Health & Human Services
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.

If you provide Medicaid-funded personal care or home health care services such as assistance with ambulation, bathing, dressing, grooming, personal hygiene, meals and homemaker services through any of the five programs listed above, then you must validate those services through an EVV system.
Yes, Michigan can now implement EVV till January 1st, 2021 as per the approval of Good Faith Effort Exemption Request. Home care agencies in Michigan can implement the same by 2021.
This means that the required care will be delivered by appropriately credentialed caregiver.
Ideally, in such a situation, it is recommended that the caregiver should capture the start time and end time during the transition between care activities.
The EVV system is secured by a unique user ID and password. Agency administrators are responsible for generating unique login credentials for all the caregivers. It is the provider’s job to maintain the confidentiality of that information.
The technology used in EVV system to verify the caregiver’s location will only record locations at the start and end of the care delivery. For any other time, it does not record anything.
New-age home care software is built on technologies with offline functioning capabilities. As soon as the connectivity resumes, it syncs the data with the system.
