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.

Dad and I appreciate the services and support you have provided to us. Quite frankly, I donít know what we would have done without your program.  It hasnít been easy for either of us as we go about this new stage in our lives, but his being at home means so much to both of us. I cannot express the huge comfort their help brings in my knowing that they are there whenever they can be while I must be at work. Dad celebrated his 89th birthday in May---in the comfort of his own home---thanks to the daily care of the competent, caring and compassionate folks that you have arranged to help us. We both will always be totally grateful for this to you and CCCI.
