DHS electronic visit verification compliance survey

The Department of Human Services (DHS) has developed an EVV Compliance Audit Survey in order to enable provider agencies to confirm which Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system(s) they will be using to capture and submit EVV data for Personal Care Services (PCS) to the DHS EVV Aggregator*. This information will help DHS to ensure each provider agency’s business operations are properly supported.

To supply this information, the provider agency’s EVV point of contact must complete the brief compliance audit survey for each 9-digit Master Provider Index (MPI) number used by your organization for PCS by March 20, 2020, to identify how your organization will submit EVV data to the DHS EVV Aggregator. Failure to complete the survey for each of your organization’s PCS MPI(s) may result in your provider agency not being sufficiently supported to submit EVV data to the DHS EVV Aggregator for all EVV system(s) your organization intends to use. The link to the survey is found here.

All provider agencies subject to the EVV requirements for PCS must complete this compliance audit survey.

Submission of EVV data continues to be required to comply with the 21st Century Cures Act as mandated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

  • Providers are expected to already be capturing and verifying EVV visit data.
  • Providers opting to use an Alternate EVV system must complete any integration and certification activities by March 31, 2020 unless an Extension Request has been submitted and confirmed as received by the EVV resource account.
  • Claims submitted after July 1, 2020 for Personal Care Services without a matching EVV visit will be denied.

*The DHS EVV Aggregator stores all EVV visit data, regardless of the EVV source (including those using the DHS Sandata EVV system).
