New Jersey DMAHS has partnered with HHAeXchange as their EVV Aggregation solution to ensure the provider community complies with the Cures Act Mandate requirements. The HHAeXchange solution will focus on collecting and reporting EVV compliant data for all personal care services for the New Jersey Family Care program. As part of the New Jersey Family Care EVV program initiative, we will need to gather more information from your provider agency.
The first step will be to fill out the New Jersey Family Care program Provider Portal Survey found below.
Provider Portal Questionnaire
This questionnaire is designed to capture information about your provider agency necessary for New Jersey DMAHS and New Jersey Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), as part of the effort to implement methods of collecting and reporting EVV compliant data for all personal care services.
We understand that each MCO has offered their own solution to participating providers and you may already have an enterprise EVV solution in place to help you be compliant. In connection with all New Jersey MCOs and the New Jersey Family Care program, this survey will allow us to understand your choice for EVV data collection and provide the best viable option for your agency. Below you will find more information on each method of EVV data collection.
Your provider agency plays a vital role in the success of our EVV program. As part of your participation with New Jersey Family Care, you have multiple options provided to you to ensure EVV compliance:
