HHSC announced Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) will be implemented for Medicaid Home Health Care Services (HHCS) on Jan. 1, 2024.
HHSC updated the services required to use EVV by Jan. 1, 2024 (PDF). This document lists Texas Medicaid HHCS, which require the use of EVV.
HHSC has posted the EVV HHCS Service Bill Codes Table on the EVV 21st Century Cures Act webpage in Excel and PDF formats. The table identifies the specific HHCS billing code combinations that require the use of EVV. The purpose of posting the table is to allow program providers and financial management services agencies to familiarize themselves with the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System codes and modifiers for HHCS required to use EVV.
The information in the table will help prevent EVV visit transaction rejections and EVV claim match denials. Visit the EVV 21st Century Cures Act webpage for the most current version of the documents.
HHSC will continue to share updates, including how to get started with EVV and when the EVV practice period will start. Notices related to the Cures Act HHCS implementation will start with “Cures Act Home Health Care Services” or “Cures Act HHCS.”
