Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

last modified 07/15/2019 - 04:21 PM

The Vermont Department of Health Access (DVHA) is implementing Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for in home services funded by Vermont Medicaid in response to federal requirements set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).
 

What is Electronic Visit Verification?


EVV is a telephone and computer-based system that records specific information about the services provided. In accordance with the Cures Act, the Vermont Medicaid EVV system will:

•    Identify the individual receiving the service
•    record the date of the service
•    the time the service started and ended
•    the person who provides the service
•    the location of the service
•    type of service

Vermont Medicaid is using an Open Vendor model where service providers can choose to use their own EVV system, or use one offered by the State.

Sandata Technologies is partnering with Vermont Medicaid to provide the State-sponsored EVV solution. In partnership with DXC Technology, the MMIS system will work with Sandata Technologies to capture the EVV data.  EVV for personal care services must be in place by January 1, 2020 and for home health services by January 1, 2023.
