Dear Provider,
Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is an electronic-based system that verifies when provider visits occur and documents the precise time services begin and end. It ensures that individuals receive their medically necessary services and that Medicaid is being accurately billed. On January 8, 2018, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) implemented Phase 1.
In August 2019, ODM will require Medicaid providers billing for Phase 2 services to use EVV which will comply with the 21st Century Cures Act.
Aetna Better Health of Ohio would like to share the provider readiness letter that was posted by the Ohio department of Medicaid. Please review the information provided for an update on the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) program:
