CareSmartz360 is a trusted partner for Minnesota home care agencies looking to scale their operations while meeting state laws and regulations, including EVV standards.
Minnesota has announced that it will deny claims for services provided without EVV compliance. To avoid your agency being a risk of claim denials, it is vital to have a robust system that integrates EVV into claims generation.
You do not have to bear ongoing costs for the DSS EVV system. However, if you choose to integrate your current scheduling system into the DSS' EVV system or any third-party EVV-based solution, you may have to pay for that service.
All services requiring an in-home visit included in claims under the home health or personal care services category on the CMS-64 form are subject to the EVV requirement. In addition, services furnished under waivers or demonstration projects that meet the statutory or regulatory definition of a "home health service" or "personal care service" must meet the EVV requirement, even if they are bundled into a different service or furnished through a managed care provider. In other words, if the service includes personal care or home health services, even if it has a different name or includes additional services, it is subject to EVV.
CareSmartz360 can be used as an EVV solution in Minnesota. Switching from an old home care software to CareSmartz360 is effortless- all thanks to open APIs, making it an ideal migration tool. These make transition hassle-free and onboarding easy. You can easily connect CareSmartz360 with any existing tool like QuickBooks, Paychex, Waystar, etc.
Compensatory time off, abbreviated as comp time, is not permitted for private employees and is only provided for public employees in Minnesota. "Comp time" means the time off in lieu of time and a half pay for the hours worked over 40 in a workweek and not in a particular "pay period."
According to Minnesota laws, a caregiver who works an irregular shift pattern must get a reasonable notice of their hours at least seven days in advance.
The Minnesota Fair Labor Standards Act (MFLSA) sets recordkeeping requirements for the covered home care workers. The employer must keep records for each home care worker paid minimum wage and overtime pay under MFLSA for a minimum of three years.
The CareSmartz360+, the EVV compliant Caregiver Mobile App is a perfect tool for caregivers because it helps home care providers when they're in the field or are moving from one place to another for accurate time tracking. The app is available for devices of all screen sizes running on iOS and Android. It is well-integrated with caregiver-friendly utilities and features.
