An Important Update Regarding EVV and Claims - DELAY

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (the Department) remains committed both to fully implementing Electronic Visit Verification and ensuring individuals receive the services they need. After reviewing an analysis of the potential impact of EVV related edits on claims, we would like more discussion with stakeholders before we proceed. So the Department will not begin to deny claims using EVV related edits for dates of service on and after February 13, 2019, as previously scheduled. The Department’s plans for moving toward a full implementation will be shared in the February EVV newsletter. In addition, the February meeting of the EVV Stakeholder Advisory Group will focus on the potential impact of the claims edits and the plans for moving forward. If you would like to participate in that meeting, please send an email to Please note, there is a load limit of 500 callers for the dial in number. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
