Understanding Missouri’s Electronic Visit Verification

The Federal 21st Century Cures Act, 2016 requires that U.S. states, including Missouri, implement an electronic visit verification (EVV) system for agencies delivering specific types of care. EVV implementation phases in Missouri were as follows:

EVV PHASE I:

All home and personal providers were instructed to demonstrate EVV implementation compliance by January 01, 2020. Missouri applied and was approved for Good Faith Effort Exemption, as a result of which the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) did not apply reductions in federal medical percentage during 2020.

EVV PHASE II:

Personal service providers in Missouri, were not fully compliant, letting the risk of reductions take effect, making the EVV implementation deadline shift to January 01, 2021.

The 21st Century Cures Act required agencies to select an EVV system that electronically verifies their information.

Missouri's Home Care Regulations & Facts

Do you know?

Missouri has laws that provide greater protections to employees than the federal laws, which include a higher minimum wage and care coverage obligations. However, the state follows federal law concerning topics like pre-employment background checks. Some other regulations governing home care workers in Missouri are:

  • Caregivers in Missouri will require a compulsory background check that includes confirmation of Social Security Number and a multi-state criminal background check. Driving record checks and credit checks are also mandatory if money and driving are involved.
  • Missouri’s equal pay law mandates fair and equal pay to be male and female care providers offering the same quantity and quality of work.
  • Missouri’s minimum wage is higher than the federal minimum wage, which is $11.15 per hour. Home care providers may pay workers in cash, by check, draft, or another voucher.
  • Home care providers in Missouri are not required to provide employees with vacation benefits - either paid or unpaid.
  • Professional Association of Caregivers recommends an 8-hour Certification Course for caregivers in Missouri.
  • The state has two pay cycles per month. The first pay cycle goes from the first through the 15th of each month, while the second pay cycle goes from the 16th through the end of the month.

A home care management software can help you abide by Missouri’s non-medical industry laws. Record keeping, maintaining billing, and automating payroll can be easy with GPS-enabled technology.
