Money Follows the Person

The IDoA Money Follows the Person initiative helps older adults move out of the nursing home and back into their communities. Some of the goals of MFP are to increase the use of home- and community-based long-term care services, eliminate barriers that prevent or restrict flexible use of Medicaid funds for necessary long-term care services in the settings reflecting individual choice and assure continued community-based long-term services to eligible individuals after transition. This program is for individuals who have resided in qualified long-term care facilities for a minimum of 30 days (excluding days paid by Medicare), have received Medicaid benefits for a minimum of one day and are 60 years of age or older.
