Understanding Wisconsin's EVV Requirements

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a federal mandate that verifies all Medicaid-funded personal care and home health services through an electronic system. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is charged with managing the Wisconsin EVV program. Service providers are obligated to use the designated EVV system, unless they meet specific criteria that qualify them for an exception or waiver.

Service Types Covered by Wisconsin's EVV Requirement

Currently, the services in Wisconsin that require the use of the EVV system include:

  • Personal Care Services (PCS)
  • Home Health Aide (HHA) Service
  • State Plan Home Health Services
  • 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 Wisconsin. For precise and up-to-date information and services covered by Wisconsin’s EVV requirements, it’s advisable to contact the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS).

Eligible Exceptions and Waivers

As specified by the DHS, there are certain circumstances that may qualify a provider for an exception or waiver from using the EVV system. These exceptions include:

  • Services delivered in remote areas with minimal internet or cell phone connectivity
  • Services provided by a caregiver who is under 18 years old
  • Services executed through telemonitoring or telemedicine

To procure these exceptions or waivers, providers must submit a request to the DHS and receive approval before they are exempted from using the EVV system.
