FAQs: Kansas EVV Implementation

 

How can I prepare for EVV implementation?

 

First, a home care agency or care provider should learn about the EVV requirements. They need to assess whether they want to go with State Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Solution or a third-party EVV solution. Prior to the implementation, they also need to complete mandatory training.

 

What language options will be available in the State EVV Solution?

 

English will be the most common one. Other options will be Spanish, Russian, Egyptian, Arabic, Mandarin, and Somali.

 

Can the State EVV Solution be used in a rural area?

 

The State EVV Solution is designed to work anywhere across the state. To facilitate uninterrupted care delivery, the MVV application used by a caregiver can also work without network connectivity and can upload information when service is restored or connected to Wi-Fi. Alternatively, there is a TVV option available in rural areas to use when a cell phone or landline is available. In situations where MVV and TVV are both unavailable, a provider may complete EVV requirements through the provider portal. Please note that manual entries are subject to increased scrutiny by the Department.

 

Is the client required to have a landline or cell phone for EVV to seek home care services?

 

No, the client is not required to have a landline or cell phone. The verification of service through EVV is the responsibility of the home care agency. To punch in the visits and provide required care, a caregiver should be given the technology necessary for EVV. A client may allow a caregiver to use their personal landline or cell phone for EVV, but it is not a rule.

 

How much data will be consumed by using the state mobile application?

 

For MVV in the State EVV Solution, each clock-in and clock-out uses roughly the same amount of data as a text message.

 

How much time does it take to clock-in and clock-out through the MVV app?

 

For MVV and TVV within the State EVV Solution, clocking-in and clocking-out would take less than a minute of a caregiver’s time.

 

What kind of mobile device can be used for EVV?

 

For iPhone: iPhone 6 and higher, running Minimum iOS version 9.0.

For Android: An Android device using Android OS 7.0 (Nougat) or higher, with a minimum OS of Android 5.0 (Lollipop).
