State Health Watch;Oct2010, Vol. 17 Issue 10, p5
The article discusses Money Follows the Person (MFP), an initiative in the U.S. launched in 2005 that was extended in 2010 as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A report in May 2010 entitled "The Starting Point: The Balance of State Long-Term Care Systems Before the Implementation of the Money Follows the Person Demonstration" provides data on where states stood before implementation of the MFP. Carol V. Irvin, author of the report, noted that some states are working on nursing home diversion programs aside from MFP programs.
