Electronic Visit Verification began on January 8, 2018.
Watch the EVV webpage 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 and phone numbers in MITS are current to ensure you have the ability to access the EVV System, as well as receive future communications related to EVV.
The Ohio Department of Medicaid began 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 included in the first phase of the EVV program 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. Only services provided through the fee for service Medicaid program are included. Services reimbursed through a managed care plan are not part of the EVV program at this time.
ODM has contracted with Sandata Technologies LLC to deliver Ohio’s EVV system, as well as to provide program orientation and training to providers.
Providers must maintain a list of individuals receiving services subject to Electronic Visit Verification, as well as a current list of direct care workers providing those services.
The vendors listed below have completed certification with at least one agency. They may or may not currently be working with providers using their systems as alternate data collection modules.
