HHAeXchange & EPSDT Partnership

AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania, Keystone First, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and United HealthCare of PA – have partnered with HHAeXchange to provide a free Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) and billing tool for member placement, scheduling, authorization management, communication, and EVV compliance for their EPSDT member population.

All providers must be fully integrated by November 1st, 2020. Therefore, to help ensure your provider agency is compliant before the deadline, below are multiple options to help facilitate a path toward EVV compliance:

  • Agencies currently using HHAeXchange: You will be able to continue using HHAeXchange, utilizing the system’s Linked Contract functionality.

    • NOTE: You do not have to complete the survey as you already have the HHAeXchange Portal.

  • Agencies currently without an EVV Solution: You will be set up to use Free EVV tools from HHAeXchange for Homecare services. Please complete the survey with the details so we can create your portal.

  • Agencies currently using another 3rd Party EVV Solution: You will use your existing EVV system and import visit data into HHAeXchange using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). Please complete the survey with the details so we can create your portal.

What does the HHAeXchange Portal provide to homecare agencies?

The HHAeXchange Portal provides a direct connection from the agency to EPSDT for:

  • Electronic case broadcasting, authorizations, plan of care management and entering confirmed visits

  • Real-time two-way messaging with EPSDT

  • Free EVV solution for time & attendance and duty tracking

  • Electronic billing

If you currently do not have a HHAeXchange Portal, please complete the Provider Portal Survey with your details and someone from the HHAeXchange team will reach out with your next steps.
