CMS announced last week it will distribute more than $110 million to expand access to home- and community-based services (HCBS) through Medicaid’s Money Follows the Person (MFP) program.
The MFP demonstration began in 2007 and was funded by the Affordable Care Act through 2016. The goal of the program is to increase the use of home- and community-based services, while allowing people to have greater control over where they receive long-term care.
“Our health care system works best when it meets us where we are and helps us get to where we want to be,” CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure said in a news release. “With this new funding opportunity, we’re expanding a program with a proven track record of helping seniors and people with disabilities transition safely from institutional care to their own homes and communities. Letting ‘money follow the person’ is key to those successes, and to the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to affordable, accessible, person-centered care.”
