In March 2021, the Division of Healthcare Financing sent providers that are impacted by EVV a welcome letter, which introduced them to CareBridge, the Division’s Contractor who is offering the free state-sponsored EVV solution. The EVV solution has since gone live and has been made available to EVV providers as of February 15, 2022.
EVV providers who did not attend the initial live webinar trainings can still view the webinar recorded videos and view training materials at the following locations:
To receive login credentials and gain access to the system, please reach out to CareBride via email or phone call: firstname.lastname@example.org or 1 (855) 912-3301.
If your provider organization already uses an EVV solution, please fill out the Third-Party EVV Vendor Intake Form: Third-Party EVV Vendor Intake. While a different vendor is an acceptable option, your existing EVV solution is still required to meet the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act. This requirement includes the ability to communicate with the CareBridge EVV solution to ensure your EVV information is received by the HCBS program and Medicaid claims are appropriately submitted to the Medicaid billing system for personal-care like home and community-based services (HCBS).

Provider FAQ This document addresses commonly asked questions related to EVV.
How does EVV work?
At a very high level, EVV collects location, time, and service information. There are multiple models and technologies available to providers and the State, all of which are currently being investigated and considered by Wyoming. Some examples of the technologies available include smart phone applications and Interactive Voice Response systems accessed over a client’s landline. The 21st Century Cures act does not mandate any specific model or technology be adopted by states so long as the required information is collected.
What information is collected by EVV systems? EVV systems are required to collect six specific pieces of information to verify a visit. They are: 1. The type of service performed 2. The individual receiving the service 3. The date of the service 4. The location of service delivery 5. The individual providing the service 6. The time the service begins and ends. What happens if there isn’t a cellular data connection where I’m providing services? Many of the EVV technologies available take into consideration off-line capabilities. Some states that have already implemented EVV systems offer a backup-verification method such as IVR through a landline. Other states use devices that are able to capture location data through GPS and store that information until a data connection becomes available for upload. Wyoming has not selected a model or specific technology to implement at this time, but this will be a key consideration when considering options. How will the Wyoming EVV System be funded? Federal reimbursement funding is available if Wyoming implements a system that meets the associated requirements. Alternatively, some states have chosen to use multiple system models, where providers can choose to utilize the State-sponsored system or purchase their own EVV system and provide the data to the State via batch files or similar data submission types. As long as the information provided meets the requirements outlined by CMS in the Cures Act, there are several options for how it can be gathered.”
