Due to the impacts of coronavirus, HHSC is extending the deadline to May 1 to select an EVV system and begin the onboarding process. The original deadline was April 1.

HHSC will continue to monitor the impacts of COVID-19 as it relates to EVV and may provide further guidance.

This information is for Cures Act program providers and FMSAs (PDF) required to use Electronic Visit Verification by Jan. 1, 2021.

Next Steps

By May 1, program providers and FMSAs must:

  1. Select an EVV vendor system or elect to use their EVV proprietary system.
  2. Submit the appropriate form to begin the onboarding process. The onboarding process does not have to be completed by May 1.
