Updated EVV Program Guidelines and Requirements Document Posted 

Situation Report | May 24, 2021

Section 5.10 ‘Manual/Paper Timesheet Entries’ of the New York State Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Program Guidelines and Policy document has been updated to include new language regarding manual and edited entry approval requirements.

The revised paragraph follows (bold is new language): 

All EVV services are required to have complete EVV data in order to be considered a verified visit. In the circumstance that a visit was not electronically captured at the time of the visit, the provider agency or Fiscal Intermediary (FI) may manually enter the visit information. All manual and edited entries require agency management approval or CDPAS consumer approval prior to adjustment and submission to the NYS Aggregator. Manually entered visits should only be used when absolutely necessary.
