Reminder: EVV Stakeholder Call on Nov. 7th, Comments & Questions Due Oct. 26th

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be holding an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Stakeholder Forum on November 7, 2018 from 1 to 3 pm EST.  This is an important opportunity to share your concerns and ask questions!  Send your comments to CMS by this Friday!

It is critical that CMS hear from stakeholders about their concerns with EVV, questions, and areas where further guidance is needed.  These may include questions and comments about how the EVV system in your state should protect privacy, independence and community integration.  You can submit comments and questions to the CMS EVV mailbox (EVV@cms.hhs.gov) by October 26, 2018. Include "November 7 Stakeholder Call Feedback" in the subject line of your email.

Areas where you may want to raise concerns or ask questions include:

Concerns about privacy and questions about steps states can and should take to protect information

Concerns about the tracking of individuals and questions about the alternatives to GPS that states can use

Concerns about use of EVV in consumer-directed programs and questions about practices states should use to preserve flexibility and consumer control in those programs

Concerns about opportunities for public input in states' EVV system designs and questions about how CMS will ensure robust public input has occurred

Please submit comments by Oct. 26th and participate on Nov. 7th if you can!
