EVV Attestation Requirement Upcoming

Providers are responsible for ensuring that their Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) systems meet the intent of the federal 21st Century Cures Act and adhere to New York State-specific requirements as outlined on the New York Medicaid EVV Program website, in the Program Guidelines and Requirements document, and in the Interface Control Document (ICD).

All providers and fiscal intermediaries (FIs) that provide or support EVV-applicable Medicaid-funded Personal Care Services (PCS) were required to implement EVV systems that meet the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act by Jan. 1, 2021. Providers that provide or support EVV-applicable Medicaid-funded Home Health Care Services (HHCS) will be required to select and implement compliant EVV systems by Jan. 1, 2023.

One of the EVV requirements is that each EVV provider annually submit an EVV Attestation Form. Please be reminded that annual attestations for compliance year 2023 are upcoming.

Process Update: As of April 1, 2022, the EVV Attestation Form is now located in the Provider Enrollment (PE) Portal. EVV Attestation functionality will no longer be in the Provisional Temporary Enrollment (PTPE) Portal, as it had been previously.

If you had previously registered for the PTPE Portal to complete your EVV Attestation Form, you will need to re-register using the PE Portal and complete the current EVV Attestation Form there. If you already have a PE Portal account, no re-registration is required.

If you need to register for a PE Portal account, please visit the eMedNY website here.

EVV Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are available here, and more information on EVV requirements and submission is here.
