Call to action: Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) would like to inform providers that a new version of the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Home Health Care Services (HHCS) Bill Codes Table has posted. Reference the revision history for information about what was updated. The table is on the EVV 21st Century Cures Act webpage in both Excel and PDF formats.
How this impacts providers: EVV will be implemented for Medicaid HHCS on January 1, 2024, and program providers and financial management services agencies can refer to the bill codes table to familiarize themselves with the specific HHCS billing code combinations that require the use of EVV.
TCHP will continue to share updates as they become available from HHSC throughout the implementation, and when the EVV practice period will begin. As a reminder, those that deliver EVV-required services must be registered for EVV GOVDelivery to receive EVV updates by email from Health and Human Services.
