EVV Model: To be determined | Aggregator: To be determined | Implementation Deadline: January 01, 2021
North Dakota has received an exemption against good faith effort exemption request. North Dakota is currently evaluating its options and developing its EVV system. CareSmartz360 is following the State of North Dakota EVV model information as it becomes available.
Home care providers can select their EVV vendor-of-choice and self-fund its implementation. However, States can recommend a preferred list of vendors that meet the requirements and standards set by the State Medicaid Agency (SMA).
Governing Body: North Dakota 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.
First, a home care agency or care provider should learn about the EVV requirements.
The State EVV Solution is designed to work anywhere across the state. To facilitate uninterrupted care delivery, the MVV application used by a caregiver can also work without network connectivity and can upload information when service is restored or connected to Wi-Fi. Alternatively, there is a TVV option available in rural areas to use when a cell phone or landline is available. In situations where MVV and TVV are both unavailable, a provider may complete EVV requirements through the provider portal. Please note that manual entries are subject to increased scrutiny by the Department.
No, client is not required to have a landline or cell phone. The verification of service through EVV is the responsibility of the home care agency. To punch in the visits and provide required care, a caregiver should be given the technology necessary for EVV. A client may allow a caregiver to use their personal landline or cell phone for EVV, but it is not a rule.
Yes. The implementation of EVV does not change the format or location of service delivery. Patients will continue to receive services in accordance with their service plan and existing program rules.
For MVV in the State EVV Solution, each clock-in and clock-out uses roughly the same amount of data as a text message.
For MVV and TVV within the State EVV Solution, clocking-in and clocking-out requires less than a minute of a caregiver’s time.
For iPhone: iPhone 6 and higher, running Minimum iOS version 9.0.
For Android: An Android device using Android OS 7.0 (Nougat) or higher, with a minimum OS of Android 5.0 (Lollipop).
