EVV Proprietary Systems: New Approval Process Coming Soon

Last updated on 5/6/2020

This information is for program providers and financial management services agencies (FMSAs) interested in using an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) proprietary system. Program providers and FMSAs currently using an EVV vendor (First Data/AuthentiCare and DataLogic/Vesta) are not affected.

Effective May 6, 2020 and until further notice, Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) will not accept additional EVV Proprietary System Request Forms. This is in response to higher than expected demand and to ensure a successful implementation of the federal Cures Act EVV requirement by Jan. 1, 2021.

A new process to manage the large number of applications will be announced this fall or sooner.

Next Steps

Program providers and FMSAs still interested in using a proprietary system should monitor the HHSC EVV Proprietary Systems webpage for updates on the new process and visit the TMHP EVV Proprietary Systems webpage to review technical documentations.

Program Providers and FMSAs Impacted by the Cures Act:

If you did not select an EVV proprietary system or EVV vendor system by the May 1 deadline, you will be assigned an EVV vendor. TMHP will notify you of your assigned EVV vendor and next steps.

If you chose a proprietary system and submitted your form prior to May 1, you must complete the system readiness review, receive HHSC approval, and implement the system no later than Oct. 30, 2020.
