IMPORTANT UPDATES

EVV Mandate January 1, 2021

Electronic visit verification required for all attendant care services.

NSC is currently utilizing Sandata for visits, scheduling, and documentation. No more paper timesheets!

The 21st Century Cures Act directs state Medicaid programs to require providers of personal care services and home health services to use an electronic visit verification (EVV) system to document services rendered. Federal law requires that providers use the EVV system to document the following information:

  • Date of service

  • Location of service

  • Individual providing service

  • Type of service

  • Individual receiving service

  • Time the service begins and ends

We wish everyone safe and happy holidays! Tis the season to care!
