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 time sheets.
The 21st Century Cures Act Section 12006, is a federal law requiring all states to use Electronic Visit Verification for Medicaid personal care services and home health services. States must implement EVV or risk a loss of Medicaid matching dollars:

When an attendant provides services to a client in the home or the community, the attendant must use one of three approved EVV time recording methods to clock in when services begin and clock out when services end. Below is an example of how the attendant would use each approved EVV time recording method.
The attendant arrives at the home, using the EVV vendor system approved mobile app clocks in before starting services. The attendant can then begin providing services. When the visit is complete, the attendant clocks out using the mobile app.
The attendant arrives at the home and before starting services, uses the client's landline phone to call a toll-free number, issued by the EVV vendor, to clock in. The attendant may be prompted to enter their EVV ID or other identifying data elements, depending on the EVV vendor's system. The attendant follows this same process when clocking out.
The attendant arrives at the home and before starting services, locates the placement of an alternative device in the home and writes down the numeric code displayed on the device. The attendant can then begin providing services. When the visit is complete, the attendant writes down a second numeric code displayed on the device. The attendant then calls a toll-free number, issued by the EVV vendor, and enters the first numeric code for clocking in and enters the second numeric code for clocking out. The numeric codes displayed on the alternative device are like electronic time stamps, capturing the date and time of the visit.
