What’s Happening with Missouri Medicaid and EVV
Missouri DHSS states that in order to comply with the CURES Act, the Missouri Department of Social Services (DSS), MO HealthNet Division (MHD) has opted to pursue an open vendor model, allowing providers of PCS and HHCS to select the EVV vendor which best suits their needs, or to continue to utilize their existing system. The implementation of the EVV vendor will not be funded by MHD funds.
It also states that the requirements set forth by DSDS do not meet all needs of the CURES Act, and not all responses contained in the FAQs are consistent with the upcoming mandates. A new regulation to meet all requirements outlined in the CURES Act is being drafted at this time. Until the new regulation is in place, current DSDS regulation continues to be in effect.
According to a flyer put out by the Missouri Department of Social Services, the Missouri Department of Mental Health and the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS) If you are a Missouri HealthNet provider and offer any of these services, you must implement EVV by January 1, 2020.
