Understanding Alabama’s Electronic Visit Verification

The Government of Alabama has mandated that all Medicaid-funded home care agencies implement Electronic Visit Verification (EVV).

EVV PHASE I:

The Alabama Medicaid Agency implemented an Electronic Visit Verification and Monitoring (EVVM) for HCBS waiver service clients. The state initially entered into a contract with AuthentiCare for the system. Providers did not have an option to use another EVV system. Phase I was implemented on October 1, 2017.

EVV PHASE II:

Alabama Medicaid partnered with HHAeXchange to provide a free Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system for providers of home care services. Agencies could also use a 3rd party EVV solution and import data into HHAeXchange using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). Phase II was implemented on February 01, 2022.

Alabama's Home Care Regulations & Facts

Do you know?

Holding a governmental or third-party certification is not mandatory for caregivers who provide a range of services to the elderly. Alabama home care aides have different requirements, which depend on employment circumstances. A few of them are as follows:

  • Alabama has set standards at a nationally mandated level. The home care aide must have at least 75 hours of training.
  • The state government also employs home care aides. The minimum entry-level standard is a high school diploma or GED.
  • Alabama home care aide employment is projected to increase by 32% between 2014 to 2024.
  • The minimum time and half pay in Alabama is $10.88 per hour.
  • The federal and state government jointly funds Medicaid in Alabama. Medicaid's matching rate is 70 percent federal and 30 percent state. The matching rate depends on the state's per capita income and changes yearly.

Home care software can make the lives of Alabama agency owners easier. The GPS-enabled technology can help Alabama home care agencies keep track of caregiver training, ease onboarding, and calculate payroll seamlessly.

FAQs: Home Care in Alabama

Alabama Medicaid is transitioning from a closed model Electronic Visit Verification system to a new open model Modular Electronic Visit Verification (MEVV) system. Under this, the Alabama EVV vendor will provide a front-end application to capture EVV data and aggregate the visit-related data from the third-party EVV systems.

Alabama Electronic Visit Verification solutions must verify the following:

  • Date of service
  • Location of service
  • Individual providing service
  • Type of service
  • Individual receiving service
  • Time the service begins and ends

Electronic visit verification solution verifies a caregiver's location, hours of work for payroll and billing, helps with Medicaid reimbursements, curbs fraud, and ensures transparency in care quality with continuous tracking and monitoring caregiver visits to help home care agencies facilitate caregiving.

CareSmartz360 can be used as an EVV solution in Alabama. Switching from an existing EVV-compliant home care software to CareSmartz360 is effortless- all thanks to open APIs, making it an ideal migration tool and the switch worthwhile.

There is no home care license requirement in Alabama, which is why the regulations are flexible. However, some agencies still choose to become certified to provide Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Alabama Department of Public Health oversees these providers.

Time and a half pay, also known as overtime pay, refers to one and a half times an employee's normal hourly wage. According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, Alabama's overtime minimum wage is $10.88 per hour.

Alabama or federal law does not place any limitation on the number of hours a caregiver is permitted to work in a particular day or week. However, the employer must compensate the worker based only on the number of hours worked.

Alabama labor laws do not need employers to provide employees with severance pay. If the employer selects to provide severance benefits, these requirements must comply with the terms of an employment contract and established policy.

The caregiver training programs can be accessed under the training tab in the CareSmartz360 portal, displaying a list of courses that have been assigned to the caregiver along with their progress.

CareSmartz360 offers a robust billing solution for smart and accurate billing, adequate payment, and quick reporting. Care providers can submit claims the same day they offer services and get paid faster to be able to stay ahead of claim denials.

Additionally, CareSmartz360 is an all-inclusive of electronic visit verification for agencies who bill Medicaid, capture data required for EVV, and helps caregivers stay focused on care delivery.
