Arkansas has chosen to implement an open vendor model in which the state selects a single vendor while allowing providers and MCOs to continue using their existing EVV systems as long as it meets federal EVV guidelines.
AxisCare meets state EVV requirements, so providers may continue to use AxisCare as their EVV and management solution. We have also developed integrations with HHAeXchange*, AuthentiCare, and CareBridge*, Arkansas’ contracted vendor, which will allow agencies to send specific visit information directly to those aggregators.
Arkansas’s Good Faith Exemption request has been approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This delays implementation of EVV in Arkansas until January 01, 2021. Learn More
*HHAeXchange and AuthentiCare integrations are underway and will be completed before the January 1, 2021 deadline.
