As Expected, Trump Signs Bill Delaying Deadline for Electronic Visit Verification

Posted: Aug. 1, 2018

President Donald Trump late Monday officially signed off on H.R. 6042, a widely supported bill to delay the nationwide deadline for electronic visit verification (EVV) in Medicaid-reimbursed personal care services, Home Health Care News reported. 

The 21st Century Cures Act, signed into law in 2016 under the Obama Administration, originally required home care providers and state agencies to begin adopting EVV systems by Jan. 1, 2019. H.R. 6042, sponsored by Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-Kentucky), pushes that deadline back to Jan. 1, 2020, the website said. 

According to the website, the bill passed through both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate without opposition. The news of H.R. 6042 becoming law comes with little surprise, as most industry stakeholders anticipated President Trump signing the bill.

NAHC's Response To EVV Delay

"While NAHC supports the use of EVV for personal care services, we also recognize that many states have not advanced the development and implementation of EVV sufficiently to ensure its intended purpose is achieved. Therefore, NAHC supported the legislation in the House and Senate."
