As the date for EVV implementation gets closer, we would like to provide the following important clarifications.
Watch the EVV webpage (http://medicaid.ohio.gov/INITIATIVES/ElectronicVisitVerification.aspx) for updates regarding the use of EVV data in the claims adjudication process after the initial six month period. In addition, please make sure provider email addresses in MITS are current so providers receive all communications related to EVV in the future.
Please contact the EVV mailbox (EVV@medicaid.ohio.gov) with any questions regarding the EVV implementation.
The Ohio Department of Medicaid will begin using an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system for many home and community-based services in January 2018. EVV is an electronic system that verifies when provider visits occur and documents the precise time services begin and end. It ensures that individuals receive their medically necessary services.
Services to be included in the EVV are State Plan Home Health Aide, State Plan Home Health Nursing, Private Duty Nursing (PDN), Ohio Home Care Waiver Nursing, Ohio Home Care Waiver Personal Care Aide, Home Care Attendant, and RN Assessment.
ODM has contracted with Sandata Technologies LLC to deliver Ohio’s EVV system, as well as to provide program orientation and training to providers.
What does EVV mean for agency and non-agency providers?
The below vendors have completed certification with their respective agencies. Each agency wishing to use an alternate EVV vendor will need to go through certification regardless of whether the vendor has previously been certified. This list will continually update as more vendors complete the certification process.
