EVV is still to be implemented in most of the states with different guidelines and regulations. We’re keeping up with the updates related to EVV implementation and if there is something we haven’t included, please share with us.

The EVV system must be utilized to record and verify the delivery of home health services (home health visits, private duty nursing, and personal care services) using technology solutions for identifying delivery of the service and deterring fraudulent or abusive billing for the service. Also, the EVV solution must provide an electronic billing interface and the electronic submission of claims for home health services.
Depending on the MCO plan, each provider selected an EVV company to manage the confirmations of visits and verification for claim approval. Please check with your MCO program. The two companies participating in Florida are Tellus and HHAeXchange.
