Testimony Opposing HB 5018: EVV Claims

TAHP opposes HB 5018 because it creates unnecessary delays in managed care plans’ efforts to recover payments made to providers suspected of fraud and abuse involving the state’s Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system.

The federal government mandates the use of EVV by attendants delivering Medicaid services to confirm that services were delivered. EVV electronically documents and verifies in-home personal care or home health care service delivery by recording the date, time, service type, and location through a smartphone, tablet, home phone landline, or other state-approved devices.
