Why are states requesting EVV Good Faith Effort Extensions?

October 22, 2019

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has strongly encouraged states to submit electronic visit verification (EVV) good faith effort extension requests by November 30, 2019. Many states have already submitted requests, 11 of which have been approved and published by CMS.

Applied Self-Direction created a new resource, EVV Good Faith Effort Extension Reasons by State, that summarizes these approval letters for EVV good faith effort extensions. The chart includes good faith actions taken by states and their reasons for an unavoidable delay in EVV implementation. We will continue to update this chart as additional approvals are released.
