Report provides update on progress of Money Follow the Person
An update on the progress of Money Follows the Person (MFP) programs across the nation is detailed in a report released by Mathematica Policy Research. The report provides a variety of data collected from January - June 2011 on the two parts of the program: a transition program to identify Medicaid beneficiaries living in institutions who wish to live in the community and help them do so, and a rebalancing program through which states make system-wide changes that allow more Medicaid beneficiaries with disabilities to live and receive services in the community.
According to the report, enrollment in MFP continued to grow steadily with a 33 percent increase from the end of 2010. The report also gives the first look at referrals to the MFP program for nursing home residents who expressed interest in returning to the community. An overview of state MFP grantee progress on key performance indicators is also included, such as a look at how much and where states were spending their rebalancing funds and the major accomplishments and challenges states reported when implementing their transition programs.
