The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced bill H.R.2446 to require the use of electronic visit verification for personal care services furnished under the Medicaid program.
If passed, any State Medicaid Program that does not meet the requirements and is unable to verify the date of service, site of service, provider of service, and duration of service will be penalized.
Penalties for non-compliance are proposed to begin January 1, 2018.
