Home Health Pre-claim Review
In accordance with Chapter 59 of the Laws of 2011, as amended in 2014, certain providers of home health services that exceed $15 million in Medicaid fee-for-service and/or Medicaid managed care reimbursements are required to utilize a verification organization (VO) to perform a pre-claim review. The VO must verify the home health services within a claim or encounter collected from electronic visit verification (EVV) prior to submission of the claim or encounter to the Department of Health (DOH) or to a managed care provider.
The Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) has identified the participating providers that are required to utilize a VO. Those providers required to participate will be notified by the OMIG by certified letter. Only providers that receive notification from OMIG are required to have their services verified by a VO. If you have any questions regarding your status under the amended law please contact OMIG at (518) 402-1470.
Providers requiring a VO must select their VO from the OMIG and DOH joint list of approved VOs, which can be found on our website at http://omig.ny.gov under the Resources tab. Follow the Verification Organizations link. Please note that the VO you select does not have to be the same vendor you utilize for your EVV services.
Additional information and resources related to the law can be found on our website at http://omig.ny.gov under the Resources tab. Follow the Home Health Requirements and/or Questions and Answers links.

The OMIG may sanction some providers by excluding them from participating in the Medicaid program. These providers are excluded from offering services to Medicaid enrollees and also cannot be paid with Medicaid dollars. Prior to adding new staff members, employers should check to see if prospective employees have been excluded from Medicaid. To make it easier to perform such a check, OMIG set up a dedicated service to check the status of any exclusion.
