On January 8, 2018, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) implemented Phase 1 of the state’s mandated Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for agencies operating in the state. In short, the mandate instituted a requirement that OH homecare agencies and related businesses providing home health utilize an electronic-based EVV system that verifies when provider visits occur, and documents the exact time services begin and end. The goal was to ensure that individuals receive their medically necessary services and that Medicaid is accurately billed for those services.
