Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)
Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) begins August 3, 2020
As required by state and federal law, starting August 3, 2020, all home care agencies in Colorado will have to electronically verify each home care visit with a Medicaid client. This will ensure that clients get their services. All agencies are required to utilize EVV and report the type of services a client receives, the client's MedicaidID, the date, the location and what time the service begins and ends.
The State of Colorado has given agencies the option to exempt Live-ins from the EVV requirement: Accordingly, Alpine will not be requiring caregivers who live with their client to use EVV (for that client). Live-in status will need to be verified by filling out a caregiver attestation form and submitting one of the following permissible documents: Copy of both state ID’s showing shared residency; address listed on tax returns; automobile registration; voter registration card, utility or other household bill showing individuals address, bank account statements or Medicaid records. All documentation must be current or have a date within the last three months.
