A new federal law requires Nebraska to implement a new electronic visit verification (EVV) system for Medicaid Aged & Disabled Waiver and Personal Assistance Services providers this year. EVV electronically captures and verifies provider visit information.
Please subscribe to this page if you would like to receive email notifications each time new information is available.
Meeting information is below:
Section 12006 of the 21st Century Cures Act amended the Social Security Act to mandate state Medicaid agencies implement Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) use for personal care services requiring an in-home visit by a provider beginning January 1, 2019. A subsequent federal change adjusted the date to January 1, 2020, and provided an option for states to apply for a 'Good Faith Exemption' request to implement EVV for personal care services after January 1, 2020 and before January 1, 2021. Nebraska DHHS applied for the Good Faith Exemption and was approved by CMS to implement prior to January 1, 2021. Home health care services will be required to utilize EVV beginning January 1, 2023
