Under the 21st Century Cures Act, states must implement an electronic system to verify certain home and community-based services were delivered in order to continue receiving federal financial support toward the costs of those services.
*Shared Living Providers are not required to use EVV

Providers who fail to produce the records requested within thirty calendar days following the request shall be subject to denial, suspension, or revocation of certification and/or loss of their Medicaid provider agreement.
