Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a technology that automates the gathering of service information by capturing time, attendance, and care plan information entered by a home care worker at the point of care. EVV gives providers, care coordinators, and DCH access to service delivery information in real time to ensure there are no gaps in care throughout the entire course of the service plan.

In accordance with the 21st Century Cures Act, states are required to implement EVV for Medicaid-financed Personal Care Services by January 1, 2019 and Home Health Care Services by January 1, 2023. EVV electronically verifies the:

  • Type of service performed;
  • Individual receiving the service;
  • Individual providing the service;
  • Date the service was provided;
  • Location of service delivery; and
  • Time the service begins and ends.

Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT)

The Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) program provides eligible members transportation needed to get to their medical appointments. To be eligible for these services, members must have no other means of transportation available and are only transported to those medical services covered under the Medicaid program.

DCH utilizes two (2) brokers, Logisticare and Southeastrans, to coordinate and provide NEMT services for the state's five regions (North, Atlanta, Central, East and Southwest).

In accordance with the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) (42CFR431.53), the NEMT program provides transportation for the purpose of:

  • Medical treatment
  • Medical evaluations
  • Obtaining prescription drugs
  • Obtaining medical equipment
