Ohio has received an exemption against good faith effort exemption request. You can use CareSmartz360 as your agency management system to meet all EVV state requirements.
The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) contracted Sandata to design and assist in the implementation of Ohio’s EVV system. The system will make use of mobile devices with GPS capability supplied to each Medicaid beneficiary receiving home health or personal care services. EVV is the responsibility of the agency providing a service, not the beneficiary receiving a service.
