EVV Model: State Mandated External Vendor | Aggregator: AuthentiCare | Implementation Deadline: January 01, 2021
Medical Assistance Division (MAD) and the Developmental Disabilities Supports Division (DDSD) has collaborated to make sure that New Mexico meets federal mandate and implements EVV by January 1, 2021.
New Mexico has selected a closed model in which the state mandates a specific EVV provider (see their state website for more information).
CareSmartz 360 is currently investigating an integration with the chosen vendor. More information coming soon.
Governing Body: New Mexico Centennial Care

Yes, New Mexico can now implement EVV till January 1st, 2021 as per the approval of Good Faith Effort Exemption Request. Home care agencies in New Mexico can implement the same by 2021.
No, home care agencies must use Authenticare as their EVV provider. It is closed state model. The State of Alabama will only pay for Medicaid services provided and verified in the AuthentiCare aggregator.
Under the new mandate, the EVV system must verify the following:
EVV allows verification of an employee’s location, hours of work for payroll and billing, visits being reported are actually taking place, and that the patients are getting the care they require.
Better care delivery, gapless communications, enhanced productivity of the staff, and automation of key processes are some other benefits of implementing EVV. It also helps to curb fraud and ensure transparency in care quality with continuous tracking and monitoring.
