Certified home health agencies or personal care providers exceeding $15 million in Medicaid fee-for-service and/or Medicaid managed care reimbursements are required to have a verification system or a verification organization (VO) to perform a pre-claim review. Home care agencies in New York State, especially in New York City (NYC), are familiar with EVV technology.
