Electronic visit verification (EVV)
Humana requires home healthcare providers to use the HHAeXchange portal to submit confirmed visits and bill claims. The first step in effectively working with Humana is to complete the HHAeXchange
HHAeXchange healthcare provider functions include:
- Free EVV tools
- Open model electronic data interchange (EDI) integration with third party EVV vendors
- Real-time, two-way messaging with each MCO
- Electronic receipt of demographics, authorizations and plans of care
- Pre-bill scrubbing to ensure clean claims and accelerate the revenue cycle
Effective for dates of service beginning June 21, 2021, claims for personal care and home health services submitted outside of HHAeXchange will be denied unless there is a documented vendor system issue that prevents the healthcare provider from billing through HHAeXchange.
When there are technical issues between healthcare providers and HHAeXchange, providers should open a technical ticket with HHAeXchange by emailing one of the following:
- Providers utilizing their own EVV system should email
- All other providers should email
After following the steps outlined above without resolution, please email our Provider Resolution team at
Upon receipt, we will review each technical issue case and determine if the claim is exempt from denial.
For questions regarding EVV, please call HHAeXchange at 855-400-4429.
