The soft launch period is the time for provider agencies, clients, and caregivers to adapt to EVV system use without claim impacts. During the soft launch period, provider agencies are required to use the DHS EVV system or an Alternate EVV system that interfaces with DHS Aggregator. During this time, DHS generates reports to see which percent of required claims failed to meet EVV requirements.
Yes, it is absolutely necessary to use EVV in order to continue to provide care services and be reimbursed for specific mandated programs. The claims that you submit without using this system will be denied as per the 21st Century CURES Act.
The key technologies used in implementing EVV for capturing visit and care delivery information at the service location are:
Mobile Visit Verification (MVV): A GPS-enabled mobile application downloaded on a smartphone or tablet.
Telephony Visit Verification (TVV): A system accessed via a toll-free number, accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
