Money Follows the Person (MFP)
Money Follows the Person (MFP) provides options for community living to participants who live in nursing facilities, long-stay hospitals, and ICFMR facilities–Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities/Mental Retardation and Related Conditions. The MFP initiative has three basic Objectives:
- Provide participants who live in these Virginia long term care institutions more informed choices and options about where they can live and receive services;
- Transition participants from these institutions if they choose to live in the community; and
- Promote quality care through services that are person-centered, appropriate, and based on participant needs—Person Centered Practices and Planning (PCP).
Participants must be eligible for Medicaid and Waiver enrollment must be coordinated with facility discharge date. On this page are links to more information about MFP, followed by forms and procedures used in the MFP initiative.
