HHSC has extended the start date when Electronic Visit Verification claims for Home and Community-based Services and Texas Home Living will deny for no matching EVV visit. EVV claims matching will begin with dates of service May 1, 2023, and after. Program providers, financial management services agencies and Consumer Directed Services employers must continue to use EVV during this time.
The extension provides HCS and TxHmL program providers and financial management services agencies more time to improve claims matching. This includes more outreach and training from the Texas Medicaid and Healthcare Partnership. Training webinars will be announced at a future date.
For more information about billing updates for HCS and TxHmL, including resources to help avoid future payment denials or recoupments, reference the notice, EVV Billing Updates for HCS and TxHmL (PDF).
We will continue to post related updates and reminders. If you have not signed up to receive EVV notices by email, sign up for GovDelivery.
