Mark Dillon, Executive Director of NEVVA said "The importance of the Fall meeting is to communicate how companies and individuals can get involved in NEVVA. EVV is now a core component of the delivery of Home and Community-Based Services for Medicaid recipients. Since the passage of the Cures Act, the pace of EVV implementations has increased, but there is still work to be done. Though there are similarities in basic functionality, EVV is interpreted differently across each of their individual implementations. The members of NEVVA will be developing the standards and operational guidelines for EVV as it's implemented throughout the U.S."

NEVVA's core purpose is to establish industry standards and facilitate best practices to achieve a standard delivery of EVV data for services delivered to individuals in their homes and communities. By establishing best practices for EVV services, NEVVA will help pave the way to better, more fiscally responsible care.
EVV became a national requirement for Medicaid-reimbursed personal care services and home health care through the 21st Century Cures Act, enacted in December 2016, intended to accelerate health care innovation. Funding for the Cures Act initiatives rely, in part, on savings generated through reductions in fraud, waste and abuse from EVV. Recently, Congress approved a bill, H.R. 6042, that delays the reductions in federal matching assistance percentage for Medicaid personal care services delivered without EVV until January 1, 2020. On July 30, the President signed this legislation into law, solidifying the delay and effectively allowing more time for states to engage stakeholders and procure a solution that meets the needs of their constituents.
NEVVA will serve as a resource to help members not only implement, but also smoothly integrate and continuously innovate EVV well past the initial deadlines.
