Today, the National MLTSS Health Plan Association submitted a letter to the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce regarding the Money Follows the Person (MFP) demonstration program. Authorization for the program expired in 2016, and without reauthorization, states will lose MFP funding by 2020. The letter outlined MFP’s role in helping states transition individuals living in institutional care settings into settings that are more integrated with their communities. The letter recommended that Congress reauthorize the MFP program to maintain the progress states and the LTSS community have made in rebalancing toward home- and community-based services.
