In December 2016, the 21st Century Cures Act was enacted into law by the 114th United States Congress. Section 212006 of the Cures Act requires all states to implement the use of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for Medicaid-funded personal care and home health services that require an in-home and community visit. EVV is a technology solution that electronically verifies the utilization and delivery of care services.
Beginning January 1, 2021, Gateway Health will implement Tellus EVV to electronically verify the utilization and delivery of care services for its Medicaid members.
How does Tellus EVV work?
Tellus EVV solution is an easy-to-use, web and mobile-based solution. It will provide you with a comprehensive set of tools to easily manage your visit schedules, care plans and claims processing. Using mobile technology, Tellus captures the time and location that those services are delivered — ensuring your patients receive the medically necessary services and support they need. With EVV, you can easily schedule, monitor and verify visits as well as submit timely and accurate claims for processing.
