Florida Medicaid Health Care Alert 

May 14, 2020


Provider Type(s): 39 

Behavior Analysis Electronic Visit Verification Implementation Date Change Extended to August 1

(For Behavior Analysis Services Provided in 9,10, and 11)

The Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) has delayed the mandatory implementation date for electronic visit verification (EVV) of behavior analysis (BA) services in Regions 9, 10, and 11 to August 1, 2020. The Agency is cognizant of the impact that the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on providers in their efforts to ensure that recipients continue to receive timely care. This postponement will allow providers to have additional time to resolve any issues in using the EVV system.  

As a reminder, in order to be ready by the mandatory start date of August 1, 2020, it is the responsibility of the group administrator to ensure that all rendering providers have unique contact information in the TELLUS EVV System.
