Understanding Vermont's EVV Requirements

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a federally mandated initiative that validates all Medicaid-funded personal care and home health services through an electronic system. The Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living (DAIL) is tasked with the oversight of the Vermont EVV program. Service providers are required to utilize the designated EVV system, unless they meet specific criteria for an exception or waiver.

Service Types Covered by Vermont's EVV Requirement

Presently, the services in Vermont that mandate the use of EVV are listed as follows:

  • Personal Care Services (PCS)
  • Home Health Care
  • Respite Care
  • Adult Day Care Services
  • Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)
  • Private Duty Nursing (PDN) 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 Vermont. For precise and up-to-date information and services covered by Vermont’s EVV requirements, it’s advisable to contact the Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living (DAIL).

Eligible Exceptions and Waivers

In alignment with the guidelines outlined by DAIL, certain situations may qualify a provider for an exception or waiver from employing the EVV system. These situations encompass:

  • Services offered in remote areas with restricted internet or cellular service
  • Services administered by a caregiver who is below 18 years old
  • Services delivered through telemonitoring or telemedicine

To apply for these exceptions or waivers, providers must submit a request via the DAIL website and wait for approval before they are exempted from using the EVV system.
