MPR Report: The National Evaluation of the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration Grant Program
Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On June 01, 2015 (EST)
In May 2015, Mathematica Policy Research (MPR) issued this report on MFP demonstration that supports efforts to help Medicaid beneficiaries living in long-term care facilities transition back to the community. The six MFP grantees highlighted in this study offer several lessons that can help other states enhance their program models to better serve people with diverse support needs.
Factors that contribute to successful program performance include (1) thorough identification of a person's needs and preferences early in the transition process to help facilitate timely linkages to services in the community and avoid reinstitutionalization; (2) flexible MFP grant funds that enable MFP grantees to test new services or supports that help to better meet participants' support needs in the community; (3) quality monitoring systems to track participants' outcomes in the community; and (4) strong partnerships with stakeholders, which lead to close coordination in service delivery and propel system transformation efforts forward.
