Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Stakeholder Open Door Forum
November 7, 2018
1:00 pm -3:00 pm Eastern Time
Conference Call Only
CMS will be hosting a national call on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 from 1-3pm ET 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”.
During the call, CMS will address information submitted in advance through the previously established EVV mailbox (EVV@cms.hhs.gov) and will provide an opportunity for individuals to offer additional feedback at that time as well. As such, CMS encourages stakeholders to submit feedback to EVV@cms.hhs.gov by October 26, 2018. *Please include “November 7 Stakeholder Call Feedback” in the subject line of the email.
Please see https://www.medicaid.gov/medicaid/hcbs/guidance/electronic-visit-verification/index.html for a number of resources, including the statutory language requiring EVV usage, and implementation materials issued by CMS to-date based on that statute. We look forward to hearing from you!
