Provider Alert! Select an EVV Vendor System or EVV Proprietary System UpdateTexas Children's Health Plan
Attention: Financial Management Services Agencies (FMSA)
Effective Date: May 1, 2020
Due to impacts of coronavirus, HHSC is extending the deadline to May to select an EVV system and begin the onboarding process. The original deadline was April 1,2020. Therefore, Financial Management Services Agencies (FMSAs) must select an Electronic Visit Verification or EVV Vendor System or EVV Proprietary System by May 1, 2020.
How this impacts providers: All FMSAs currently contracted with MCOs or the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).
Next steps for providers: If you’re a program provider or financial management services agency subject to 21st Century Cures Act Electronic Visit Verification requirements, you must select an EVV system by May 1. To select an EVV system:
- Choose to use an EVV vendor system or your own EVV proprietary system.
- Submit the appropriate form to begin the onboarding process.
Program providers and FMSAs affected by the Cures Act who don’t select an EVV Vendor or choose to use an EVV proprietary system by May 1, 2020, will have an EVV vendor assigned by Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
For information on how to select an EVV Vendor System or your own EVV proprietary system please reference the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) website below:
