North Dakota's Department of Human Services is holding one more public meeting on the new federally required electronic visit verification system under the 21st Century Cures Act.

The legislation was signed into law in 2016 and affects Medicaid and long-term support services. Electronic visit verification uses a phone or computer-based system to authenticate that personal care and home health are being provided. It also keeps a record of how long services are provided.

Human Services held meetings last month in Bismarck and Fargo for people who receive in-home care and support services, and for people and agencies who provide personal care or home health services.

The agency has now scheduled a video conference from 6-7:30 p.m. Central time on Thursday, with viewing sites in major North Dakota cities. Sites include DHS Prairie Hills Plaza, Prairie and Rose Rooms, 1237 W. Divide Ave., Suite 1A, in Bismarck; Badlands Human Service Center, basement conference room, 200 Pulver Hall, in Dickinson; and Northwest Human Service Center, Room A-200, 316 2nd. Ave. W., in Williston.
