Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a computer-based system that electronically verifies that service visits occur and documents the date and time service delivery begins and ends. EVV replaces paper timesheets for EVV-required services. EVV visits are required for EVV claim payment.
EVV electronically documents the following visit data:
- Member receiving services
- Attendant providing services
- Location of service delivery
- Date of service delivery
- Time the attendant begins and ends service delivery
