EVV Welcome Kit-  Getting Started Materials

This site will provide information on changes occurring as a result of the Electronic Visit Verification Project (EVV).

Sunshine Health has contracted with Sandata Technologies, LLC to implement the EVV Project in Florida. EVV is a telephone and computer-based system that documents the time care-givers begin and end delivering services to enrollees and will be used to submit home visit claims to Sunshine Health. The EVV system and the Sandata portal will be used to schedule visits and will be the only method to submit claims for services.

There is no cost for the EVV program to the enrollee or provider agency.

  • Adult Companion Care
  • Attendant Care
  • Chore Services
  • Homemaker Services
