Case Study: Michigan’s Money Follows the Person Demonstration
(2013, February). Case Study: Michigan’s Money Follows the Person Demonstration. Washington, D.C.: Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured.
This case study looks at Michigan's Money Follows the Person (MFP) demonstration program, which has enabled the state to accelerate existing transition activities and increase access to home- and community-based services (HCBS) by providing enhanced federal funds for each MFP participant's 365-day enrollment period. Through MFP, Michigan is able to provide a comprehensive set of demonstration services in addition to existing HCBS waiver services so that each MFP participant receives the services necessary to transition home and to maintain a community residence (abstract from: http://www.kff.org/medicaid/8414.cfm).
