Understanding New Hampshire’s Electronic Visit Verification

New Hampshire (NH) worked with the stakeholder community in the first half of 2020 to identify EVV design and program requirements. These requirements will help in procuring information system components needed for implementing EVV. The Electronic Visit Verification implementation timeline in New Hampshire looked as follows:

EVV Phase I:

NH sought a CMS good faith effort exemption for delaying implementation until January 01, 2021, which was approved on November 21, 2019.

EVV PHASE II:

New Hampshire contracted with Mercer Health & Benefits LLC to assist stakeholder engagement and identify EVV business requirements used as the foundation for Request for Proposal (RFP) to procure EVV services on December 12, 2021.

EVV Phase III-

Soft launch of EVV is estimated to begin on January 01, 2023.

EVV Phase IV-

EVV statewide implementation date is forecasted between January- April 2023, while the CMS certification will be attained between July- September 2023.

New Hampshire's Home Care Regulations & Facts

Do you know?

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and Health Facilities Administration oversees the state's licensing and regulation of home care providers. There are a few rules that home care agencies must follow if they want their agency to comply with the current regulations:

  • Home care workers in New Hampshire are entitled to minimum pay of $7.25 per hour.
  • In-home senior care agencies in New Hampshire are struggling to acquire staff to meet their community needs, meaning there is a high caregiver shortage in the state.
  • New Hampshire law permits pre-employment credit checks.
  • Since New Hampshire is an equal pay law state, employers may not require workers to refrain from disclosing their wages as an employment condition. Thus, home care providers may not terminate or discriminate against a worker who reveals their salary or other paid benefits.
  • Unlike other states, a home care provider may not force workers to work for more than five consecutive hours without granting them a 30-minute lunch break.
  • New Hampshire has the second best Medicaid program in the United States, called NH Medicaid (Medical Assistance) Eligibility for Adults.
  • The state of New Hampshire complies with the mini-WARN Act.
