EVV Model: Open Model | Implementation Deadline: January 01, 2021
Minnesota has received an exemption against good faith effort exemption request. CareSmartz360 is following the State of Minnesota EVV model information as it becomes available.
By January 1, 2023, EVV is required for home health services which include services provided by home health agencies and medical supplies and equipment providers.
Governing Body: Minnesota Department of Human Services
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. To learn how CareSmartz360 can help in ensuring compliance, please get in touch with us.
Yes, home health agencies providing the listed care services come under EVV mandate. If the agencies submit a claim for reimbursement without corresponding documentation through EVV after January 1, 2021, they may face denial of the claim.
Yes, Minnesota can now implement EVV till January 1st, 2021 as per the approval of Good Faith Effort Exemption Request. Home care agencies in Minnesota can implement the same by 2021.
No, you do not have to bear any continuous cost for the DSS EVV system. However, if you choose to integrate your current scheduling system into DSS’ EVV system, or any other third-party EVV-based solution then you may have to pay for that service.
States that have not implemented EVV by January 1, 2021 will be subject to FMAP reductions unless they have made a “good faith effort” to comply and have encountered “unavoidable system delays.”
All services requiring an in-home visit that are included in claims under the home health category 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 services or home health services, even if it has a different name or also includes other services, it is subject to EVV.
