Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a state-implemented telephone and computer based technology system used to verify electronically that a Medicaid Personal Care Services (PCS) worker has arrived on the job and assisted a person with a disability with approved PCS tasks. EVV was a response to concerns about fraud, waste, and abuse in Medicaid-funded PCS. Research would have to be conducted on the impact of EVV to address these issues.
This report investigates if EVV, in representative states, acts as a barrier, facilitator, or a promising practice in terms of supporting and advancing choice, control, community living, and participation for disabled individuals who receive Medicaid PCS.
