Deadline Extended: Help Us Document the Impact of EVV!

Now that more states have implemented Electronic Visit Verification (EVV), we are once again looking to you to share your experiences with us. NCIL remains committed to considering all available options to fight this harmful law, and in order to do so, we need your help! Please share your experiences with us. Please answer the questions below, and share any other relevant information. We have extended the deadline for submitting this information to Friday, November 9, 2018. Send your responses to Lindsay Baran at

  • Has your state implemented or begun to implement EVV?
  • How does EVV work in your state? For instance, are they using telephonic timekeeping? Are they requiring the use of GPS tracking? Does the system involve random checks, or complex activity logs? Share the details with us.
  • Have you been personally affected by EVV? For instance, have you been more restricted from accessing your community freely? Have problems with the system or technology delayed payments? Have attendants quit due to new burdensome requirements?

As a reminder, please also make sure to join the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for and Open Door Forum on EVV. CMS will host this Open Door Forum via national conference call to solicit stakeholder feedback on EVV implementation. We encourage all interested individuals to participate in the call on November 7 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Eastern at (800) 837-1935, Conference ID 33979177.

For additional information on NCIL’s work on EVV, please see our recent alert.
