FAQs: Mississippi EVV Implementation

There are certain standards brought in force to make sure that the care services are delivered only by individuals who possess the requisite skills and competencies and to ensure that services are performed in a safe and effective manner.

 

Other regulations with which care providers must comply:

  • Medicaid regulations
  • HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996)
  • HIPAA Title II Administrative Simplification and Compliance Act
  • Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitations Act of 1973
  • Age Discrimination Act of 1975
  • Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990

Ideally, a home care software is embedded with functionalities to help home care service providers meet all the regulations and stay compliant for every act of care.

Yes. The implementation of EVV does not change the format or location of service delivery. Patients will continue to receive services in accordance with their service plan and existing program rules.

Under the new mandate, the EVV system must verify the following:

  • Date of service
  • Location of service
  • Individual providing service
  • Type of service
  • Individual receiving service
  • Time the service begins and ends

First, a home care agency or care provider should learn about the EVV requirements. Prior to the implementation, they may need to complete mandatory training.
