Fiscal Agent

Implementation of a fiscal agent to assist in the administration of in-home care services provided by independent providers is a high priority recommendation included in the Long Term Care Redesign Plan, completed in August 2017. 

Electronic Visit Verification

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.  Home health care services will be required to utilize EVV beginning January 1, 2023.

Electronic Visit Verification Survey

A survey has been developed to aid the Department in obtaining information from stakeholders (specifically providers) regarding staffing, telecommunications services available in service areas, and current EVV systems in use. The survey is completely anonymous and cannot be traced back to individual respondents. It consists of only 10 questions and takes 4 minutes or less to complete. Surveys must be submitted by Friday, January 12, 2018. Data gathered will be shared with stakeholders on this web page and at a future LTC Redesign Council meeting. This link will take you directly to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RXDDRH9.

LTC Redesign Council Meeting Schedule 

All LTC Redesign Council Meetings are held in the Nebraska State Office Building located at 301 Centennial Mall South in Lincoln.
