Electronic Visit Verification using a Timesheet App

The Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) deadline is fast approaching for Home Health Providers. While dealing with COVID-19 impact and new safety procedures, HHA's are now mandated to implement a Caregiver EVV solution that complies with the 21st Century Cures Act. Onboading a new EVV management system for your home care agency that will be easy to roll out to your Caregivers is most important during these challenging times. Look for a  Timesheet App that exceeds Electronic Visit Verification requirements and integrates with your State's aggregators. States are now in the process of EVV  roll-outs and implementing the rules and regulations set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act. Deadline to implement electronic visit verification (EVV) for personal care services has been extended for many states until January 1, 2021. This means that homecare agencies must have plans to implement EEV solutions now, or face reductions to federal Medicaid assistance. The deadline for home health services is 2023.

EVV Specifications

Some states have chosen technology partnerships with managed care organizations (MCOs), while others like Pennsylvania are implementing an open model that allows interfacing with best of breed third-party providers that can meet or exceed established requirements.  Some states are still selecting or building their own aggregators and processors which are required to interface with legacy systems owned by the state. Check with your State for a list of approved Aggregators.

EVV Benefits 

Electronic Visit Verification records can make for a faster turnaround of claim review and reimbursement. Additionally, the software ensures that the services rendered are within the authorized care plan. After the payer receives visit data, it is verified at the payer level and then agencies receive reimbursement for services. 

The primary benefit of EVV is to eliminate paper-based systems and to focus on client health outcomes and caregiver safety by using electronic careplan checklists, location verification, and COVID-19 caregiver screening.
