Understanding Nevada’s Electronic Visit Verification

Section 12006(a) of the 21st Century Cures Act requires states to implement EVV for all Medicaid Personal Care Services (PCS) and home health services (HHCS) that require an in-home visit by a provider. EVV implementation in Nevada was as follows:

EVV PHASE I:

EVV bill was passed to delay EVV implementation without penalty by July 30, 2018.

EVV PHASE II:

States not requiring the use of an EVV system by January 01, 2019, will see a reduction in federal funding received.

EVV PHASE III:

Requests from States for Good Faith Effort Exemption accepted as of May 2019.

EVV PHASE IV:

States must require EVV use for all Medicaid-funded PCS by January 01, 2021.

Nevada's Home Care Regulations & Facts

Do you know?

The 2020 Census reveals that seniors comprise around 16.1% of the total population, increasing by over 105,300. With the senior population multiplying, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services is bestowed with the responsibility of regulating the home care industry. Thus, home care agencies in this state are required to abide by some regulations, which are:

  • The minimum pay for caregivers in Nevada is $14.78 per hour.
  • A nonpartisan research center in Nevada, Guinn Center for Policy Priorities, reports a possible "care gap" because wages are below the cost of living and the limited benefits prevent the workforce from expanding to meet the need.
  • Nevada home care providers must pay their worker's one-half times the regular wage rate if they work more than 40 hours a week.
  • Nevada labor laws do not mandate home care providers to provide severance pay.
  • Like many other states, Nevada has various rules for paid sick leave, and home care workers can carry around 40 years of accrued sick leave per year.
  • The Division of Health Care Financing and Policy operates as Nevada's Medicaid program, and the State and the Federal government share the cost of Nevada check-up and Medicaid.

Using home care management software can make your life easier. The GPS-enabled technology helps Nevada Home Care Agencies to adhere to state EVV, leave, reimbursement, and wage laws. Additionally, the agencies can ensure that their demands for payroll, billing, care plans, and other operational requirements are met.

FAQs: Home Care in Nevada

Nevada is an open model state, and its EVV implementation deadline was January 01, 2021.

The complete data that must be captured during a visit is:

  • The type of service performed
  • The full name of the individual receiving the service
  • The full name of the individual providing the service
  • The specific date the service was provided
  • The physical address (location) where the service was provided
  • The time the service begins and ends

SB 340 of the Nevada Legislature had created the Nevada Home Care Employment Standards Board (HCESB), which reviews investigations and strives to improve the working conditions of the home care industry.

Participate in the one-day training session, and plan to have at least one PCA responsible to teach the rest of your office staff and PCAs.

  • Communicate to your office staff and PCAs about the AuthentiCare system.
  • Assess your internal processes as the system is being implemented.
  • After training, ensure that your office staff and PCAs are ready and able to use the system.
  • If applicable, download the AuthentiCare application for your or your staff’s mobile device.

Currently, you cannot use the CareSmartz360 EVV system for your homecare business in Nevada. However, we are working closely with Nevada to meet the state’s EVV requirements. We’ll keep you updated regarding any updates regarding the integration with the state EVV aggregator.

A home care worker who works more than three and one-half hours must receive a permitted rest period equal to 10-minutes for every 4 hours worked. So, whenever feasible, workers can take rest breaks in the middle of each work day. Also, the rest periods are counted as the hours worked.

No. Nevada labor laws do not require home care providers to provide workers with severance pay. Severance pay is a payment that home care providers offer workers if they are terminated or dismissed from employment.

However, if the employer opts to provide severance pay, they must comply with the employment contract terms or policy.

Nevada State Law entitles home care workers whose time and half wages are less than $10.88 per hour and who receive Essential Health Benefits (EHB), which are to be paid overtime whenever they work for more than 8 hours in 24 hours.
