Register Now for June and July 2015 HHSC EVV Training

DADS, MCOs and TMHP contracted provider agencies required to use HHSC EVV are invited to attend an EVV provider training session in June or July. The training, presented by DADS in partnership with HHSC, the MCOs and TMHP, will provide information about HHSC EVV Reason Codes, Visit Maintenance and the HHSC EVV Compliance Plan. Representatives from HHSC, DADS, TMHP, each MCO and all HHSC-approved EVV vendors will be at each location and each session to answer questions.

Participants will also learn how provider agencies' use of the HHSC EVV system will be evaluated under the HHSC EVV compliance plan.

At the end of each training session, DADS will provide additional training regarding what happens to DADS contracted providers who do not meet the HHSC EVV compliance requirements.

Independent of these training sessions, MCOs and TMHP will educate their contracted providers regarding what happens when they do not meet the HHSC EVV compliance requirements. Contact your payer for information regarding the MCO and TMHP Provider Compliance Trainings.

Providers can attend either the morning (8 a.m.-Noon) or afternoon (1-5 p.m.) session; the information is the same at both. Space is limited, so please register early. Registration is limited to no more than 2 people per contracted provider agency. Each person must register individually using the registration links below.

Please select only one training session. Registration is first come, first served for each training session.
