Money Follows the Person: A 2015 State Survey of Transitions, Services, and Costs


During the spring and summer of 2015, the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured surveyed MFP states about basic program information, including MFP services, transitions, and costs, as well as evaluation activities, post-2016 sustainability plans, and the lessons learned from MFP in support of other Medicaid LTSS rebalancing/delivery system reform efforts. Each MFP state received the written survey instrument, and 43 (of 45) states submitted a complete questionnaire. Two states (AR and CA) opted not to participate in the survey. Oregon completed the survey, and its responses are included in this report, but the state has since terminated its program, effective June 30, 2015, bringing the total number of states participating in MFP to 44. The data summarized here were provided directly from MFP Project Directors and other state staff. The full survey instrument can be found in Appendix A of this report. This report was supplemented with data provided by state officials in previous Kaiser MFP surveys conducted between 2008 and 2013.
