Money Follows The Person (MFP)

What is Money Follows the Person?

Money Follows the Person (MFP) is a federal demonstration program that helps Medicaid-eligible individuals currently living in long-term care facilities – such as nursing homes, hospitals and other qualified institutions – successfully transition back into the community.

Who is eligible?

To participate in the program, a person must be eligible for Medicaid and living in a long-term care or hospital setting for at least three months. He should have an interest in living in the community and be eligible for one of the community service packages.

How does it work?

Based on the person's individual needs, MFP provides the funds, services and support he needs for a successful transition into the community. In addition to returning to his home, housing options include individual apartments, assisted living and group homes. A care management team will assess what level of care – including the type and amount of services - the person will need to be safe while in the community.

How do I learn more?
