Nascentia Health Information Center

HHAeXchange is the premiere Homecare Management Software company for the Medicaid LTSS population. We are the leaders in connecting payers and homecare agency providers to enable more collaboration, communication, and workflow efficiencies. Through the use of the HHAeXchange Portal, our goal is to make working with Nascentia Health easy and efficient.

HHAeXchange & Nascentia Health Partnership

Section 12006 of the Twenty-First Century Cures Act (Cures Act) and The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that states begin utilizing an Electronic Visit Verification System (EVV) for all Personal Care Services by January 1, 2021. As a result, we are excited to share with you that Nascentia has partnered with HHAeXchange (HHAX) to leverage their platform for our payer services and needs. We are strong believers in the ability of their technology to help us communicate and work with you to ensure the best quality care of our members. Not only will this allow for a smoother partnership between your organization and ours, it will also make your work easier.

Through the HHAX platform, we will be able to send placements, create and manage authorizations, and most importantly, communicate – all in real-time.

In addition, the HHAX platform offers a robust agency management solution that can help streamline and automate time-consuming agency functions including scheduling, Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) and billing of services.

What does the HHAeXchange Portal provide to homecare agencies?

The HHAeXchange Portal provides a direct connection from the agency to Nascentia Health for:

  • Electronic case broadcasting, authorizations, plan of care management and entering confirmed visits
  • Real-time two-way messaging with Nascentia Health
  • Free EVV solution for time & attendance and duty tracking
  • Electronic billing

Your Agency’s Options:

  1. Agencies currently using HHAeXchange: You will be able to continue using HHAeXchange, utilizing the system’s Linked Contract functionality.
  2. Agencies currently using another 3rd Party EVV Solution: Authorization data will become available in the HHAX Portal. Schedule and visit data will be imported from your 3rd party system into HHAX. Please work with your EVV Vendor to determine requirements to set up this interface.
  3. Agencies not currently using HHAeXchange or a 3rd Party EVV Solution: You will receive a free HHAX Portal to receive authorizations and submit claims/invoice data. HHAeXchange’s Business Development team will reach out to you for portal agreements.

Importing Caregivers into HHAeXchange

Please CLICK HERE to access the Caregiver Bulk Import Process Guide, which provides instructions for how to:

EDI Overview (Integrating with a 3rd Party Agency Management System)

Thank you for your participation in working with HHAeXchange on the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) project for your agency. Below you will find information about the general requirements and steps to take to successfully integrate your Agency Management System with HHAeXchange.

HHAeXchange coordinates directly with Nascentia to ensure members and, if desired, authorizations are passed directly into the HHAeXchange system. Once this data is in the HHAeXchange system, a unique member key is created which HHAeXchange will pass to your Agency Management System to ensure seamless processing of member information between the systems. HHAeXchange will also give you a unique Provider Agency ID to include in all files used in the EDI processes.

In order to integrate between your Agency Management System and the HHAeXchange, you will need to create the EDI files corresponding to the HHAeXchange specifications found in the following documentation (links below):

Yes. The HHAeXchange Portal provides a Prebilling Claims Scrubbing module designed to ensure that your claims are compliant with the authorization and contract.

Processes for importing and exporting data from the HHAeXchange Portal can be found on this page under the “EDI PROCESS” tab.
