The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced the hard launch of Wisconsin’s electronic visit verification (EVV) requirement for personal care services will begin on May 1, 2023.
After the hard launch, the Wisconsin DHS will impose consequences when EVV information is not captured for required personal care and supportive home care services (service codes T1019, T1020, S5125, and S5126).
Consequences include claim denial, exclusion from future capitation rate setting development, and possible IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self-Direct) participant disenrollment.
The hard launch is required by the federal government for Wisconsin to continue to receive its full federal funding.
A virtual public forum will be held on Tuesday, December 6, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m., CT. DHS will walk through the EVV federal requirement and resources to prepare for hard launch. There will also be a Q&A session where Wisconsin EVV specialists will answer questions. The forum is offered at no cost and is open to the public.
