Electronic Visit Verification: What YOU need to know
The Ohio Department of Medicaid 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.
EVV is an electronic system that verifies key information about services provided. The system implemented by the Ohio Department of Medicaid will record:
- the date of the service
- the time the service started and ended
- the name of the individual receiving the service
- the person providing the service
- the location of the service
Both agency and non-agency providers are impacted by Electronic Visit Verification requirements. Training will begin for them on May 6, and they will be required to begin using EVV on August 5.
To find out whether you’re included in Electronic Visit Verification, visit https://medicaid.ohio.gov/evv and go to the “Individuals” tab on the left-hand side of the page. Choose “Impacted Service Table” under the heading “Resources.”
