Welcome to CalEVV

The State of California implemented the California Electronic Visit Verification (CalEVV) system for Personal Care Services (PCS) on January 1, 2022, and Home Health Care Services (HHCS) on January 1, 2023, in accordance with the federally mandated requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act.

Does EVV apply to me?

The Provider Types and Codes document outlines the providers that will be impacted by EVV. Please reference this document to verify if your program will need to comply with EVV requirements.

If your program’s Medi-Cal provider type and procedure codes are not listed in this document, then EVV will not apply to you.

Provider Self-Registration Portal

Those who provide Personal Care Services (PCS) or Home Health Care Services (HHCS), are required to register in the Provider Self-Registration Portal. As needed, please refer to the Quick Reference Guide (QRG) and instructional materials below to help complete your registration:

CalEVV Training & Reference

Visit the online CalEVV Training & Reference Library. Most of the featured instructional videos are fewer than 20 minutes in length. The videos may be accessed anytime and are a great resource for new or established staff members who use CalEVV.

CDA EVV Office Hours

Periodically, CDA will host what are known as online "Office Hour" training events. The purpose of Office Hour webinars is to present important EVV updates, provide EVV basic training for new staff members, and to allow for interactive Question & Answer sessions to address all manner of questions involving EVV.

Announcements of future Office Hour events will be distributed ahead of time by email to CBAS and MSSP providers, vendors, and Jurisdictional Entities. Any recorded Office Hour events will be posted and made available here:
