CDPAP UPDATE : Mandatory Electronics Visit Verification to Tackle Fraud in Home Care!

In a significant shift to combat fraud in-home care, the implementation of mandatory Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is gaining traction across state Medicaid programs. This move marks a pivotal moment in the industry, with Stephen Vaccaro, president of home care software firm HHAeXchange, emphasizing the revolutionary access that real-time monitoring provides for caregivers in the home.

The 21st Century Cures Act has been instrumental in driving this change, mandating EVV usage for all personal care services paid for by Medicaid and pushing providers to verify caregiver services electronically rather than through traditional paper methods.

As states increasingly embrace EVV technology, its benefits are becoming evident on multiple fronts. Vaccaro highlights the enhanced security and simplicity that EVV brings to stakeholders, including payers, providers, patients, and caregivers. By ensuring that caregivers are present and delivering care for the correct duration, fraud prevention is bolstered while improving overall outcomes for those receiving care. This technological advancement not only streamlines administrative processes for providers but also offers a more straightforward approach for caregivers involved in home-based care settings.

With the deadline looming for home health providers to comply with EVV requirements under the Cures Act by 2023, there is a palpable momentum toward wider adoption of this transformative technology. As compliance grows among Medicaid-funded personal care services and home health sectors alike, other facets of home-based care such as hospital-at-home programs and hospice services, stand poised to benefit from streamlined infrastructure.
