On August 28, 2020, Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) made improvements to the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Portal and TexMedConnect. TMHP has created a demonstration of the EVV Portal changes and updated the related training materials.
EVV Portal Updates
TMHP has updated the EVV Claims Search tab as follows:
- EVV Match Code Dropdown Menu
- The EVV08-Natural Disaster code has been added to the claims match results. Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) will assign the EVV08 code to ZIP codes that are affected by a natural disaster. HHS will notify program providers if EVV08 will be used for a disaster.
- New ZIP Code Columns
- A Member ZIP code column and a Provider ZIP Code column have been added to the search results. The new columns can be used to confirm whether a ZIP code that should have received an EVV08 was entered incorrectly on the claim.
- Export Data to Excel Option
- The new ZIP Code columns have also been added to the exported results.
My Account and TexMedConnect Updates
TMHP has updated My Account and TexMedConnect as follows:
- My Account has added the ability for administrators to modify permissions for eligibility verification.
- Managed Care Organization (MCO) Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) providers can now verify eligibility. Users must ask their account administrator for eligibility verification access.
- TexMedConnect added three new links to the left-hand navigation menu: Eligibility, Client Group List, and Eligibility Verification Batch History.
- These new features allow MCO LTSS providers to view client eligibility information and run eligibility batch reports.
