Job Description

Project Overview: The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Claims Management Division (CMD) is responsible for overseeing the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Program. EVV is a computer-based system used to document Medicaid service delivery visits by electronically recording the precise time a service delivery visit begins and ends. Texas requires EVV for certain Medicaid funded home and community-based services provided through HHSC and managed care organizations (MCOs). HHSC currently contracts with Accenture Healthcare Services, LLC to deliver EVV System Management Services to support the Title XIX Texas Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid) and other state and federally funded programs. The current contract with Accenture will expire August 31, 2023. Texas is currently procuring a contractor to provide EVV System Management Services and a new state funded EVV system beginning in 2023.

For the EVV System Management Services transition, the worker will oversee operational and technical transition activities and provide a programmatic view of the overall health of the transition, including preparing solution options, risk identification, deliverable reviews and other transition related efforts/meetings. The worker will work closely with program staff, directors, program managers, vendors, and other related stakeholders. The worker will report to the director and program manager on status across transition activities. This will be a key role in ensuring the success of the EVV System Management Transition.

 

Other projects within the EVV Program may involve operational and technical work such as development of automated system enhancements, establishment of new business processes, and other projects as assigned. The worker will provide project management including resource and schedule management, risk and issue management, solution development, internal and external coordination, and other duties as assigned.
