Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is used by caregivers for selected home and community based services to document the time services begin and end. This system helps ensure you receive your necessary Medicaid services. Individuals receiving those services may receive an EVV device from Sandata Technologies that caregivers will use.
The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) is implementing Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for some home and community-based services in response to federal requirements set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act). EVV is an electronic system that verifies key information about the services provided. In accordance with the Cures Act, the system implemented by ODM will record the date of the service, the time the service started and ended, the individual receiving the service, the person providing the service and the location of the service. Both agencies and non-agency providers are impacted by EVV.
Please watch our Welcome to EVV video for a brief introduction to EVV.
