FAQs: Utah EVV Implementation

21st Century Cures Act’s timelines for State implementation of the EVV requirements is as follows:

  • Deadline to Implement EVV for Personal Care Services Delayed until 2021
  • Personal Care: January 1, 2021
  • Home Health Care: January 1, 2023

The State EVV Solution will utilize two primary technologies for capturing visit information at the service location:

  • Mobile Visit Verification (MVV): A GPS enabled mobile application downloaded on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Telephony Visit Verification (TVV): A system accessed via toll-free number, accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.The state will also employ web-based functionality for use by provider agencies.
  • Provider Portal: Provider agencies utilizing the State EVV Solution will have access to the portal to view and modify visit activity, and in limited circumstances, create EVV records. All information entered via the provider portal is notated as a manual entry and will be subject to Department audit.
  • Data Aggregator: The Data Aggregator is a behind-the-scenes tool used to interface with both the State EVV Solution and provider choice systems to transmit EVV data to the interchange. Providers will have read-only access to a web portal in the Data Aggregator to view visit data.

States that have not implemented EVV by January 1, 2020 will be subject to FMAP reductions unless they have made a “good faith effort” to comply and have encountered “unavoidable system delays.” More details are given here.
