Electronic Visit Verification

The Med-QUEST Division (MQD) is implementing Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for some home and community-based services in response to federal requirements set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act). In accordance with the Cures Act, the system implemented by MQD will record the: type of service, date of the service, time the service started and ended, individual receiving the service, person providing the service, and the location of the service. Both agencies and non-agency providers are impacted by EVV.

Below is recent news from MQD regarding EVV:

What does EVV mean for agency and non-agency providers?

  • EVV requirements apply to both agency and non-agency providers.
  • MQD is providing the Sandata EVV system at no cost to providers or individuals receiving services.
    • Non-agency providers must use the Sandata system.
    • Agency providers can choose to use the Sandata system or a certified alternative EVV system. Alternative EVV systems must comply with all technical specifications and business rules and complete a certification process with Sandata before going into production. Neither MQD nor Sandata are responsible for any costs related to the development, certification or use of an alternate EVV system.
  • The claims submission process will not change due to the implementation of EVV.

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is used by caregivers for selected home and community based services. Individuals receiving those services may receive an EVV device from Sandata Technologies that caregivers will use. The devices only capture information at the start and end of a visit.
