Oregon Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

EVV Model: Closed | Aggregator: eXPRS | Implementation Deadline: July 16, 2019

CareSmartz360 is following the State of Oregon EVV model information as it becomes available.

Electronic Visit Verification (or EVV) is part of a federal law that was passed by Congress in 2016. It requires states to verify the delivery of Medicaid funded Attendant or Personal Care services in real time (meaning at the time the service is occurring) from providers. Much of the work for an EVV system is already part of eXPRS.

Governing Body: Oregon Department of Human Services

FAQs: Oregon EVV Implementation

EVV is part of a federal law that was passed by Congress in 2016. It requires states to verify the delivery of Medicaid-funded Attendant or Personal Care services in real time (at the time the service is occurring) from providers. EVV is currently only required for Personal Support Workers (PSWs) who provide the following Attendant or Personal Care services:

  • OR526 – Attendant Care
  • OR526/ZE – Attendant Care 2:1 staff
  • OR526/ZE – Attendant Care 2:1 staff
  • OR502 – State Plan Personal Care

EVV works on smart phones and tablets that can access the eXPRS website. eXPRS has been changed to recognize when its being used on phones and tablets. Using eXPRS on a smartphone or tablet is called the eXPRS MobileEVV. By early 2020, PSWs who are not using EVV will need to get an exception to continue to work. The process and criteria for getting an exception to using EVV will be available in the fall of 2019. Until then PSWs should explore what options they have to use EVV. More information around exceptions to using EVV will be available at the orientation and on the website.

Section 1903(l)(5)(A) provides that the system must be able to electronically verify, with respect to visits conducted as part of personal care services or home health care services, the following:

  • The type of service was performed
  • The individual receiving the service
  • The date of the service being provided
  • The location of service delivery
  • The person providing the service
  • What time the service begins and ends

Section 1903(l)(2) also requires states to provide for a stakeholder process to allow input into the state’s implementation of the EVV requirement from providers of PCS and home health services, beneficiaries, family caregivers and other stakeholders.
