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.
