Electronic visit verification


Electronic visit verification (EVV) is a computer-based system that electronically verifies the occurrence of authorized personal attendant service visits by electronically documenting the precise time a service delivery visit begins and ends. The EVV program was implemented to replace paper-based attendant timesheets.

Texas requires EVV for certain Medicaid-funded home- and community-based services provided through the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and managed care organizations.
