EVV State by State

The Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) mandate from the 21st Century Cures Act needs to be implemented in each of the 50 states, and each state has decided on an individual basis how to comply. If you’ve come to this page needing a general overview of EVV, please start here.

Below, you can learn how EVV is being implemented in your state.

Note that this information is constantly evolving. If you see any inaccuracies or can provide more details for any state, please write to Jeremy.hammel@ankota.com.

Alabama

The state of Alabama Medicaid team has chosen the state mandated system model and selected a system called AuthentiCare. It is mandated that agencies need to use this system for EVV.

Here’s the Alabama EVV Web Page.

Alaska

Alaska Medicaid has chosen the state provided solution with provider option to choose an alternative vendor model. An RFP was issued in June seeking the state provided solution.  Replies from vendors were required by early July.  Note that Ankota did NOT apply to the RFP because we are a provider solution. We will monitor the state site for updated news.

The state’s vendor is Sandata but you can also use an alternate system like Ankota so long as your vendor provides required EVV information to Sandata. Ankota has integrated with Sandata in other states. Provider EVV best practices dictate that you should evaluate the state offering and at least one other vendor such as Ankota.

California

California Medicaid has chosen the Open Vendor Model . The state has a legacy solution called CMIPS that predates the EVV mandate. It seems clear that CMIPS will not be the system of the future and that providers can choose a system like Ankota. Provider EVV best practices dictate that you should evaluate the state offering and at least one other vendor such as Ankota. For a free EVV consultation, click here.

Unofficially we can share that California providers have been informed that personal cell phone use by their care providers will require reimbursement, but the details are not yet clear. We’re working with providers who are working on tiered plans where they will offer a monthly fee to caregivers who use their own phones and also offer alternatives like telephony from client phones and agency provided phones.

Delaware

Like essentially all of the other states, Delaware Medicaid has petitioned the federal government for an extension to January 1, 2021 to complete their EVV implementation. These extensions are granted based on the state working in good faith to comply with the 21st century cures act, but in the case of Delaware we haven’t yet seen definitive plans.

Ankota complies with the federal EVV requirements, but we are waiting for a more definitive answer from Delaware before actively working with Medicaid agencies in Delaware. If you know more about Delaware’s plans or if you’d like a free EVV consultation, click here.

These extensions are granted based on the state working in good faith to comply with the 21st century cures act, but in the case of Idaho we haven’t yet seen definitive plans.

We have it on good authority (although not officially from the state) that Idaho will follow the provider choice model and each agency can choose the system that best meets their needs. The state is planning to use Sandata as the EVV aggregator. We've further heard that the state is planning to officially announce their plans in July 2020 and expects providers to be fully compliant by the moddle of 2021.

One of the tricky things about Idaho is the need to split time between Personal Care and Homemaker. We can help with that and many other things. If you'd like a consultation, please click here.

Missouri Medicaid has chosen the provider choice model allowing each home care agency to choose the agency management system that will best service their needs. Late in 2019, they announced that providers will need to communicate EVV information to an aggregator for which an RFP process is underway. Claims will continue to need to be sent to EMOMED. In addition to the federal EVV attribution, Missouri is also requiring providers to include completed care plan items along with their EVV data. Some of the other challenges in Missouri are that there is no rounding of visit duration. Instead you can only bill complete units, but you can accrue additional minutes and bill additional units once 15 minutes are accrued.

Virginia Medicaid has chosen the provider choice model allowing each home care agency to choose the agency management system that will best service their needs. Virginia’s Medicaid program is administered by the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS - see link below) but each participant is signed up with a specific MCO. To further complicate matters, some of the MCOs accept claims with EVV attribution but others have instead required that you submit EVV visit data through a specific provider (e.g., Anthem requires that you submit through Tellus).

Although this is tricky, Ankota has a great deal of expertise in helping Virginia Medicaid agencies. For a free EVV consultation, click here.

Here’s the DMAS web site.

Washington

The state of Washington Medicaid has chosen the provider choice model allowing each home care agency to choose the agency management system that will best service their needs. They have implemented an aggregator system called ProviderOne whereby the home care agency can choose any software it wants, but their software must submit EVV data to ProviderOne.

Here’s a provider implementation guide from the Washington Medicaid site.

West Virginia

West Virginia Medicaid has the Open Vendor Model meaning that the state is providing a solution but providers are also able to choose an alternate solution such as Ankota. We have a link to the state’s EVV page below but it doesn’t say who the state provider is. Provider EVV best practices dictate that you should evaluate the state offering and at least one other vendor such as Ankota. For a free EVV consultation, click here.

Wisconsin

The state of AlabamaWisconsin Medicaid team has chosen the state mandated system model and selected Sandata. It is mandated that agencies need to use this system for EVV. There has been some indication that they are considering allowing providers to choose other systems (that will need to feed EVV data to Sandata) but there is not official communication to this affect.

Here’s the Wisconsin EVV page.

Wyoming

Like essentially all the other states, Wyoming Medicaid has petitioned the federal government for an extension to January 1, 2021 to complete their EVV implementation. These extensions are granted based on the state working in good faith to comply with the 21st century cures act, but in the case of Wyoming we haven’t yet seen their definitive plans. We've emailed the state to see if there's an update.  There’s more information on the state Medicaid EVV page below.

Ankota complies with the federal EVV requirements, and we’re working with home care providers around the state. If you’d like a free EVV consultation, click here.
