Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is an electronic system used to record the following shift information.
- Who received service
- Who provided service
- What service was provided
- Where service was provided
- Date of service
- Time in and out
An EVV record is required for service codes S5125, S5126, T1019, and T1020 (This includes service codes with modifiers. i.e. S5125U5, S5125UA, etc.)
Starting April 30, 2023, EVV replaces all other time submission methods. No more submitting an EVV record AND a paper timesheet or time submission on the web portal. Paper timesheets and time submitted on the web portal will not be accepted for service codes that require EVV.
EVV is federally mandated by the 21st Century Cures Act for home and community-based services. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) must comply with this mandate.
Notes: Live-in caregivers are exempt from EVV. The Children’s Long Term Support (CLTS) program does not require EVV.
