EVV Model: To be determined | Aggregator: To be determined | Implementation Deadline: To be determined
New Jersey is currently in the evaluation process and is leaning towards an Open Model. CareSmartz360 is following the State of New Jersey EVV model information as it becomes available.
Electronic Visit Verification ensures that only verified home care visits are billed, supporting program integrity as well as quality and safety goals. This tool also helps to target and reduce fraud, waste, and abuse.
Care providers may use EVV to manage and monitor care delivery services, streamline paper-based transactions, and reduce duplication of data.
Governing Body: New Jersey 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.

Yes, home health agencies providing care services come under EVV mandate. If the agencies submit a claim for reimbursement without corresponding documentation through EVV after January 1, 2020, they may face denial for the claim.
The objective an electronic visit verification system is to reduce the need for managing paper timesheets manually. This will also help to eliminate the need for caregivers to report to the agencies with paper timesheets.
Reporting the visit is the responsibility of the caregiver. Once the phone regains power, the visit can be saved. In case the visit is unable to be accurately recorded, the agency administrator may fix visit data within the provider portal. Please note, manually entered visits are subject to Department audit.
Service delivery should not be affected in such a situation. The agency can do a manual entry through the web portal or the software solution in use. EVV data will always remain encrypted in the lost device.
The EVV system can record multiple visits to a client per day. Each caregiver has a unique identifier, and EVV records created by that identifier are caregiver-specific. The EVV solution does not limit the number of services a client can receive in one day.
