Sandata Highlights Electronic Visit Verification at NAHC Conference

Sandata Technologies, LLC, the leading provider of technology for home care agencies, state Medicaid agencies, and MCOs, will exhibit at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) Conference in Grapevine, Texas and will continue to highlight Sandata’s Electronic Visit Verification™ (EVV™) solution.

Sandata EVV™ ensures 21st Century Cures Act compliance by validating the: service performed;  individual receiving the service;  individual providing the service; date of the service; location of service delivery; and the time the service begins and ends. Sandata EVV offers a powerful combination of patented solutions, called Assured Coverage™, which includes mobile, telephonic, and fixed visit verification methods.

Despite the recent passing of H.R. 6042 which delayed the EVV mandate in Medicaid-reimbursed personal care services to January 1, 2020 at a national level, states continue to prepare and finalize their individual state plans for EVV compliance with the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act.

While the EVV mandate is delayed in many states, now is the time for agencies to prepare for its arrival. As the leader in EVV and the only EVV vendor with experience in all four of the state mandate models that have deployed, Sandata is currently working with numerous state Medicaid agencies as they focus on choosing their EVV approach. We are also working with state home care associations to help educate provider agencies on the types of models that exist and how they can be utilized to ensure success into the future.

Sandata encourages the use of an Open EVV environment as documented by CMS. Sandata has experience implementing statewide EVV solutions in 13 different states, and was the originator of the Open EVV model. We encourage providers, state associations, state Medicaid agencies, software vendors, and MCOs to continue working towards a collaborative EVV solution where value is recognized by all constituents in the home care industry, and where we jointly commit to improving the care delivered to Medicaid members while reducing the burden on providers.

Sandata is a proud member of The National Association for Home Care & Hospice and we look forward to seeing our clients and prospective clients at the conference, October 7-9, 2018.
