Electronic Visit Verification survey
The Electronic Visit Verification survey applies to the following AHCCCS service provider type organizations.  These service providers provide services which will be required to be verified through an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system: 
  • Attendant Care Agency - Provider Type 40
  • Behavioral Outpatient Clinic - Provider Type 77
  • Community Service Agency - Provider Type A3
  • Fiscal Intermediary - Provider Type FI
  • Habilitation Provider - Provider Type 39
  • Home Health Agency - Provider Type 23
  • Integrated Clinic - Provider Type IC
  • Non-Medicare Certified Home Health Agency - Provider Type 95
In response to the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) requirements outlined in the 21 st Century Cures Act and AHCCCS efforts already underway to implement EVV, your organization's response to this survey is being requested to gather critical information. Responses are being sought from both providers without EVV systems, providers considering the purchase of their own EVV system and providers who currently use an EVV system that would help inform the design of the EVV system to be implemented by AHCCCS.
All of this information will be used by AHCCCS to inform the issuance of a formal Request for Proposal for an EVV vendor in 2018. While AHCCCS is procuring the system, EVV implementation does not intend to change how providers currently interact with health plans or AHCCCS. It is AHCCCS' intent to reduce individual member, direct service staff and provider burden as we seek to implement the best possible EVV system mandated by the 21 st Century Cures Act.  More information on EVV may be found on the AHCCCS website .
The deadline for responses is March 12, 2018. The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. Surveys are automatically saved and respondents can complete a portion of a survey and return later to finish the rest.
Please visit the AHCCCS webpage to access the survey link under the "Request for Information" sub-heading or click on the following link Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Provider Survey that supports respondents in preparing to complete the survey.  Mercy Maricopa, in conjunction with AHCCCS, encourages you to complete this survey prior to the March 12, 2018 deadline. 

As always, don't hesitate to contact your Mercy Care or Mercy Maricopa Provider Relations Representative with any questions or comments. You can find this notice and all other provider notices on our Mercy Care or Mercy Maricopa website.     
Thanks for all you do!
