Georgia has chosen an open vendor EVV approach in which the state can either contract with a single EVV vendor, build their own system for providers to use, or allow the use of other EVV systems.
Georgia has selected Conduent in partnership with Tellus as its EVV vendor and established a go-live date of July 1, 2021.
AxisCare is currently researching an integration with Tellus in Georgia. In the meantime, AxisCare meets all mandated system requirements, so providers may continue to use AxisCare as their EVV and management system.
Georgia’s Good Faith Exemption request has been approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This delays implementation of EVV in Georgia until January 01, 2021. While Georgia will miss this January 1, 2021 implementation deadline and incur incremental Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) penalties, DCH is committed to working with Members, Providers, and vendors to meet training needs and implement a quality solution as quickly as possible.
