EVENT REMINDER: Electronic Visitor Verification Public Forums Begin This Week!


Do you or a loved one receive care through one of the following Georgia Medicaid waivers: NOW or COMP, ICWP, CCSP, or SOURCE? If you answered yes, you should register today for an Electronic Visitor Verification public forum.

The Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) will be hosting public forums for Medicaid members, case managers, providers, agency staff, etc. who would like to learn more about Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) and Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) program services in Georgia throughout the rest of the year! The NEMT program provides eligible members transportation to get to their medical appointments. A Medicaid member is anyone that uses Medicaid.

EVV is a technology that automates the gathering of service information by capturing time, attendance and care plan information entered by a home care worker at the point of care. Under the 21st Century Cures Act, Georgia must implement EVV for Medicaid-funded Personal Support Services/Community Living Support Services by January 1, 2019 and Home Health Care Services by January 1, 2023. At a minimum, EVV electronically verifies the:

  • Type of service performed
  • Individual receiving the service
  • Individual providing the service
  • Date the service was provided
  • Location of service delivery
  • Time the service begins and ends

DCH is conducting the public forums to provide information and get feedback from their stakeholders in an interactive forum. It is very important that DCH hear from the people who rely on Medicaid home and community based services. From our experience, past meetings have mostly been attended by providers. EVV will impact how services are delivered. Now is the time to raise any concerns or questions you may have.

Forums will be held at the following locations across the state of Georgia:
