The 21st Century Cures Act – What Providers Need to Know About New EVV Requirements
In December 2016, Congress passed the “21st Century Cures Act”, a sweeping legislative package that includes new funding and resources to address a wide variety of medical topics, including the opioid epidemic, the FDA drug approval process, medical research, and behavioral health issues. Importantly for providers, it also includes new requirements for electronic visit verification (EVV) and a penalty for non-compliance starting in 2019. EVV is a system that requires providers to confirm that services were actually delivered and to do so through a possible variety of electronic methods for each service like a phone call, electronic signature, and so forth. Join us for an overview of the law’s major provisions, detailed information on the EVV requirements that will impact your agency, and how to get involved early on in the process of implementation to ensure that the provider voice is heard.
