Florida Medicaid EVV Software

Alora Software has made EVV easy for Indiana home care agencies.

Home Health Software with Florida EVV

Agencies may implement Alora Home Health Software with its built-in Florida EVV software solution. Alora’s EVV for Florida Medicaid is an enhanced EVV software solution that is fully integrated into a powerful home health care agency management system.

ALORA INTEGRATES WITH TELLUS AND HHA EXCHANGE

AHCA and the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) health plans require agencies to utilize an EVV vendor. Florida has chosen an “Open Model” for EVV, meaning agency providers are free to choose any EVV system that best fits their needs. The sole requirement is that the Florida EVV system selected must collect all six data elements as required by the 21st Century CURES Act.  Alora captures this information for you.  The EVV data captured needs to be transmitted to the chosen data aggregator:

HHAeXchange is the aggregator for the following health plans:

  • Children’s Medical Services Health Plan
  • Humana Medical Plan
  • Molina Healthcare
  • Staywell
  • Sunshine Health

Alora transmits claim-ready EVV data for these health plans to HHAeXchange.

 

Tellus is the EVV data aggregator for the following payers:

  • Medicaid fee-for-service
  • Aetna Better Health
  • Florida Community Care
  • Magellan Complete Care
  • Simply Healthcare
  • UnitedHealthcare

Alora transmits claim-ready EVV data for these payers to Tellus.

FLORIDA EVV FACTS

Florida is defined as an “Open Model” state, meaning agency providers are free to choose any EVV system that best fits their needs. The sole requirement is that the Florida EVV system selected must collect all six data elements as required by the 21st Century CURES Act. Those requirements are:

  • Exact date and time services were performed
  • Start and end time of services provided
  • Type of service performed
  • Location where services were provided
  • Individual who provided services
  • Individual who received services

FLORIDA EVV IMPLEMENTATION DATE

When does Florida EVV start?

AHCA has directed SMCC health plans to require providers to electronically verify all visits for home health and personal care services beginning on December 1, 2019. Enforcement of payment penalties for non-compliance will begin on February 1, 2020.

 

EVV’s Updated GO-LIVE date –  December 1, 2020

The Agency for Health Care Administration announced the implementation date for electronic visit verification (EVV) for behavior analysis (BA) services as December 1, 2020 for the pilot Regions 9, 10, and 11.  Providers must bill through the Tellus EVV System and must no longer bill via the Medicaid Provider Web Portal.  Beginning December 1, 2020, claims billed through FMMIS will not be paid.  Providers should act now to reorient themselves to using the Tellus EVV System and take advantage of the options outlined below for training and technical assistance. Florida providers may still use an alternate EVV system of their choosing so long as it meets the requirements of aggregator data transmission through the state provided system.

 

WHAT ARE FLORIDA EVV REQUIREMENTS?

Section 409.9132, Florida Statutes (F.S.), instructs Home Health care agencies operating in the state of Florida to choose a capable vendor to operate an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Program of home health services provided through the fee-for-service delivery system. The chosen electronic visit verification system must meet the following requirements:

  • EVV System must verify the utilization and delivery of home health services including (home health visits, personal care services, & private duty nursing)
  • EVV System must hold sufficient technology which can identify and deliver details of the homecare services while deterring fraudulent and/or abusive billing for the service
  • EVV System must provide an interface for electronic billing and require electronic submission of claims for home health services.

Florida’s AHCA EVV System allows the use of EVV third-party integration software for approved Florida EVV systems. ALORA features an EVV system designed to capture and send EVV data to the Florida EVV Claims system for billing.

ALORA & FLORIDA EVV

Florida Medicaid has chosen three aggregators for EVV: HHA Exchange, Tellus and Coastal Care. Florida Medicaid involves direct Medicaid as well as MCOs.  ALORA Home Health Software will integrate with Tellus and HHA Exchange.  EVV data will be captured through ALORA and then transmitted directly to Tellus & HHA Exchange.
