Electronic Visit Verification

Recent Changes to Billing Codes for Texas EVV in Home Health Services

Starting December 1, 2023, providers must submit their EVV claims directly to the Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP). Learn how to ensure your EVV documentation is completed correctly so your claims are not denied.

A significant update from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is set to impact how Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) claims are handled. Starting December 1, 2023, there are new submission processes that Texas providers need to be aware of.

Key Update:

From December 1, 2023, all program providers are required to submit their HHSC EVV claims to the Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP). You can do this through Cubhub automatically as an approved PSO. For the full details, you can view this TMHP notice.

What This Means for Providers

  • Claims Rejection by MCOs: Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) will reject any HHSC managed care claims with EVV services dated on or after December 1, 2023. These claims must be resubmitted to TMHP for proper EVV claims matching.

  • Billing Combination Changes: New billing combinations and modifiers have been introduced for different types of service locations, including in-home and out-of-home settings. You can view the new billing combinations in the Long-term Care Bill Code Crosswalks.

Next Steps for Providers

Be aware that from January 1, 2024, EVV claims without an EVV visit match will be denied. It's crucial to thoroughly understand and integrate these updates into your operations. Ensure your team is trained and your billing systems are updated to align with the new requirements, including the use of specific billing combinations and modifiers for different service settings. Stay proactive in monitoring your EVV data to avoid claim denials and utilize resources like Cubhub for streamlined, real-time tracking and management of your EVV submissions.
