Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Arizona is compliant with Section 1903 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1396b), also known as the 21st Century Cures Act, and the requirements set forth by AHCCCS; the Arizona State Medicaid program. This consists of the implementation of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for non-skilled in-home services (attendant care, personal care, homemaker, habilitation, respite) and in-home skilled nursing services (home health) as of January 1, 2021. For updated EVV information, please review the material below or visit https://azahcccs.gov/evv

UnitedHealthcare Community Plan would like to encourage our provider community utilizing EVV to have a policy in place outlining their process for following all of the provider requirements, as specified in AMPM 540. A policy may be essential in the future for potential review and auditing purposes.
