EVV Soft-Start on October 1

September 26, 2019

DMAS has released the following:

“Personal care, respite care and companion service claims submitted before the end of the year will be paid whether or not EVV information is present.  If the claim is not submitted before New Year’s Day, EVV data will be required for dates of service retroactive to October 1, 2019.  Therefore, try to submit 2019 claims before the end of the year.

In the meantime, October through December 2019 is an excellent time to test your EVV system.  The remittance advice for service dates between October 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 will provide information on EVV data that is missing or invalid. If you have additional questions, please contact DMAS at EVV@dmas.virginia.gov. ”

A Medicaid Bulletin is posted on the DMAS WebPortal for more information. As was discussed on the Member’s call last Friday, we will test the new billing code for respite services provided in a group home or sponsored residential home and post the results.
