Good Faith Exemption (GFE) Approval - DCH submitted a GFE Request Form on behalf of the State of Georgia on November 8, 2019. CMS granted an approval of the request on Monday December 3, 2019. Georgia’s new deadline for implementing EVV for Personal Care Services (PCS) is now January 1, 2021 and Home Health Care Services (HHCS) by January 1, 2023. While Georgia will miss this January 1, 2021 implementation deadline and incur incremental Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) penalties, DCH is committed to working with Members, Providers, and vendors to meet training needs and implement a quality solution as quickly as possible.
