Navigating Maine's EVV Requirements

Maine Electronic Visit Verification is a federally mandated program that requires Medicaid-funded personal care and home health services to be verified through an electronic system. The Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provides an EVV system to all providers. Maine operates on an open EVV model, wherein agency providers have the option to use an alternate EVV system like AxisCare home health care software.

Service Types Covered by Maine's EVV Requirements

The following service types are currently required to use EVV in Maine:

  • Personal Care Services (PCS)
  • Home Health Care Services (HHCS)
  • Consumer-Directed Attendant Services
  • Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)
  • Any services that require an in-home visit by a provider through Section 40 (Home Health Services) and Section 43 (Hospice Services)

Please note that these are general categories, and the exact services subject to EVV may depend on the specific Medicaid program and policies within Maine. For precise and up-to-date information and services covered by Maine’s EVV requirements, it’s advisable to contact the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.

Eligible Exceptions & Waivers

According to the Maine DHHS, there are certain situations where a provider may be eligible for an exception or waiver from using the provided EVV state aggregator. For the most up-to-date information on eligible EVV exceptions and waivers in Maine, it’s advisable to contact the Maine Department of Health and Human Services directly.
