Phase 3 will include self-directed services and other services necessary to meet the requirements of the Cures Act. Phase 3 of EVV is scheduled to go live on September 4, 2020.
Phase 2 includes nursing, aide and home care attendant services provided through PASSPORT, IO waiver nursing and homemaker personal care (including services provided on behalf of individuals) provided through DODD waivers and nursing, aide and home care attendant services reimbursed through Medicaid managed care plans. In addition, group visits are being rolled into EVV across all phase 1 and phase 2 services. Mandatory data collection for phase 2 services will begin on August 5, 2019 and claims edits are expected to deny claims several months later. Self-directed services and services reimbursed through a daily billing rate are excluded from Phase 2.
Phase 1 was limited to state plan home health nursing and aide services, private duty nursing, RN assessment, and Ohio Home Care Waiver nursing, aide and home care attendant services.
ODM began collecting EVV data on January 8, 2018. All phase 1 visits were required to be documented using EVV for dates of service on and after July 8, 2018. Edits matching claims data to visit data using the units of service delivered and billed were implemented for dates of service on and after August 15, 2018.
