Electronic Visit Verifications (EVV)

Beginning Sept. 14, 2022, the EVV validation failed code messages on provider claims are changing to more descriptive language for each EVV exception. The provider’s remittance advice will display the messages contained in the EVV Error Resolution Guide. ODA has created a new EVV Error Resolution Guide to help providers, individuals, and case managers. The EVV Resolution Guide lists each exception, has an exception description, and provides action steps to resolve the exception. Below, is the current exception message in the system printed on an affected provider’s remittance advice and then a list of the updated versions.
