Mathematica Policy Research Evaluates the Money Follows the Person Demonstration

"The Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration supports state efforts to help Medicaid beneficiaries living in long-term care facilities transition back to the community and to make community-based long-term care services and supports more accessible. To enable successful transitions, MFP participants are typically offered expanded home- and community-based services (HCBS) beyond those normally available to Medicaid enrollees in similar circumstances. The MFP grant program allows states to test and implement innovative services without the restrictions of a waiver, and states are taking advantage of this flexibility particularly in the areas of pre-transition and short-term services where some states have focused on expanding transition coordination and invested in services available after discharge," write Victoria Peebles and Matthew Kehn of Mathematica Policy Reseach.
