Georgia Allows Alternative EVV Systems
The Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) provides a state-wide EVV solution and encourages all providers to use it. However, DCH allows providers to use any other system as long as it integrates with the state system. Alternative systems must:
- Collect visit data
- Have GPS functionality
- Send visit information to the state’s EVV system in near-real time
DCH has not yet chosen a vendor to provide the state-wide EVV system.
Programs Affected: Services provided through fee-for-service Medicaid programs (NOW/COMP Waiver Services, ICWP Waiver Services, Elderly and Disabled Waiver Services, Georgia Pediatric Program, Private Home Care Providers, Home Health Aide Workers, Private Duty Nursing
