CMS seeking feedback on EVV implementation

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a national call on Nov. 7 from 1 to 3 p.m. ET (participant dial-in number 1-800-837-1935, conference ID 33979177) to solicit stakeholder feedback on electronic visit verification (EVV) implementation. This opportunity is in keeping with the Sense of Congress language in H.R. 6042 indicating that CMS should “convene at least one public meeting in 2018 for the purpose of soliciting ongoing feedback from Medicaid stakeholders on guidance issued May 16, 2018 regarding electronic visit verification.” EVV implementation has been pushed back to Jan. 1, 2020 at the earliest.

During the call, CMS will address information submitted in advance through the previously established EVV mailbox and will provide an opportunity for individuals to offer additional feedback. CMS encourages stakeholders to submit feedback to EVV@cms.hhs.gov by Oct. 26. Please include “November 7 Stakeholder Call Feedback” in the subject line of the email.
