EVV Model: Open Vendor | Aggregator: To be determined | Implementation Deadline: January 01, 2021
New Hampshire is in the evaluation process for the EVV Implementation. CareSmartz360 is following the State of New Hampshire EVV model information as it becomes available.
On December 13, 2016, President Obama signed into law the 21st Century Cures Act. Section 12006 of the Act – “Electronic visit verification system required for personal care services and home health care services under Medicaid” – is a call for action. States that do not have EVV systems in place by January 1, 2019 for personal care services and January 1, 2023 for home health care services will face a reduction in the federal medical assistance percentage (FMAP).
