The 21st Century Cures Act
The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act), signed into law on December 13, 2016, is designed to help accelerate medical product development and bring new innovations and advances to patients who need them faster and more efficiently. The main aspect of this law that will affect those working with Burd Home Health is called Electronic Visit Verification (EVV). This type of system and reporting is required by all Fiscal Intermediaries like Burd Home Health in all states starting January 1st, 2021.
The Goals of EVV are to ensure timely service delivery for members, including real-time Service gap reporting and monitoring, reduce the administrative burden associated with paper timesheet processing and generate cost savings from the prevention of fraud, waste, and abuse. It aims to strengthen quality assurance by improving the health and welfare of individuals through the validation of delivery services.
