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.
