Cures Act EVV: New 5/1 Deadline to Select EVV System and Onboarding
Due to the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19), Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) is extending the deadline for providers to select an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system and begin the onboarding process to May 1, 2020.* This information applies to Cures Act program providers and Financial Management Services Agencies (FMSAs), who are required to use EVV by January 1, 2021.
HHS will continue to monitor the impacts of COVID-19 as it relates to EVV, and may provide further guidance.
By May 1, 2020, program providers and FMSAs must:
- Select an EVV vendor system or elect to use their EVV proprietary system.
- Submit the appropriate form to begin the onboarding process. Please note: The onboarding process does not have to be completed by May 1, 2020.
For instructions on how to select an EVV system and begin the onboarding process, please visit the Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) EVV System Selection Resource.
Program providers and FMSAs who do not select an EVV system and begin the onboarding process by May 1, 2020 will have an EVV vendor system assigned by HHS.
For questions regarding the EVV selection or onboarding process, please email Electronic_Visit_Verification@hhsc.state.tx.us or visit the HHS EVV Cures Act webpage.
*Please note: The original deadline for selecting an EVV system was April 1, 2020.
