Ohio has a contract with Sandata to provide a state-wide EVV solution, beginning January 8, 2018. The state claims providers can use their own vendor instead of Sandata, but some providers are finding it difficult to get alternative vendors approved.
Only services provided through the fee-for-service Medicaid program are included. Services reimbursed through a managed care plan are not part of the EVV program at this time.
Programs Affected: State Plan Home Health Aide, State Plan Home Health Nursing, Private Duty Nursing (PDN), Ohio Home Care Waiver Nursing, Ohio Home Care Waiver Personal Care Aide, Home Care Attendant, and RN Assessment
