What it is: EVV systems electronically verify, by a phone or computer-based system, that personal care, home health and other home and community-based services are being provided. The system is also required to document the actual time a provider begins and ends a service. Passed by Congress in 2016, the federal law impacts Medicaid and long-term services and supports.
