The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) would like to clarify expectations regarding EVV during the COVID-19 emergency:
The EVV training requirement for new providers has been suspended. This means new providers do not have to take EVV training and submit a training completion certificate before completing their enrollment process. However, any new provider of EVV-eligible services during this time will need to take EVV training after the COVID-19 crisis has passed, if they wish to continue to be a Medicaid provider.
No claims are being denied because of EVV at this time. ODM will use EVV and logged visits to help ensure that individuals continue to receive services throughout this emergency and identify individuals who may not be receiving expected services. If you have questions regarding EVV, please reach out to EVV@medicaid.ohio.gov.
Please see the newsletter below for a quick reference guide, contact information, and upcoming training updates.
The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has updated guidance for discontinuing transmission-based precautions in COVID-19 patients. Based on these updates, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities has updated guidance for Adult Day Services (ADS) and the DODD Companion Guidance and Terms for Using LTSS Toolkit.
