EVV Implementation Plan

EVV Implementation Plan for the PCA Program and MFP Waiver

In September 2020, MassHealth released a Request for Response for FI Services for the PCA Program and MFP Waiver.  MassHealth included EVV as a procurement requirement for the selected FI vendor.  The FI vendor was announced in April 2021, with a contract start date of January 2022. 

MassHealth will work with the selected vendor during the period between the award announcement and contract start on EVV implementation plans.  EVV will be implemented gradually over calendar year 2022. 

The attached implementation plan illustrates key milestones for EVV implementation for the PCA Program and MFP Waiver. PDF
