Money Follows the Person (MFP)

MFP is a federal demonstration grant, received by the CT Department of Social Services from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It was awarded to help rebalance the long-term care system so that individuals have the maximum independence and freedom of choice regarding where they live and receive care and services. The program builds on current programs by offering enhanced community services and support to those who have resided in nursing facilities for at least three months. Under MFP, CT will receive, for those transitioning back to the community, an enhanced Medicaid match of nine million dollars over five years, being reimbursed for 75 percent of costs for the first year back in the community instead of the customary 50 percent. This federal support is a financial incentive for Conn. to reduce the use of more expensive institutional care for Medicaid recipients. The approach is more cost-effective for taxpayers and is expected to lead to improved quality of life for older adults and people with physical and developmental disabilities and mental illness. People transitioning back into the community have the choice of where they want to live, whether itís the personís own home, a family memberís home, an apartment or congregate living.

Goals of the MFP

  1. Increase dollars spent on home and community based services.
  2. Increase the percent of people receiving their long-term services in the community relative to those in institutions.
  3. Decrease the number of hospital discharges to nursing facilities for those requiring care after discharge.
  4. Increase the probability of people returning to the community within the first three months of admission to an institution
  5. Transition individuals out of institutions and back into the community

Individualized care plans are created based on need. CCCI transition coordinators will provide one-to-one assistance with community supports, system navigation, accessing resources and living arrangements.

I am compelled to put in writing how much I appreciate the help you and your organization have provided for my mother. When she left the convalescent home a few months ago she couldnít see herself living alone anymore. You and your staff came right in when she got home and filled every need she had. My mother has made a few good friends with those who help and I believe they have actually extended her life. She has told me that she could never make it without the help she receives.
