Abstract With the support of federal grant funds from the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration Program, 30 state programs are seeking to transition about 34,000 Medicaid beneficiaries with disabilities from institutional to community-based care between 2007 and 2011. While state MFP transition programs share some similar features, they vary in other ways that can affect how quickly and completely transition programs can be implemented as well as how many people can be transitioned. States differ in their level of experience and infrastructure to undertake large-scale transition programs. States also are pursuing different strategies to (1) expand transition coordination capacity, (2) locate appropriate housing, (3) enhance long-term supports and services, and (4) change Medicaid home- and community-based programs or policies to ensure that those who transition can remain in the community after the MFP eligibility period ends. In this report, we describe states experience with transition programs for institutionalized populations before the start of the MFP demonstration. We also discuss how differences in key program features can affect the pace and degree of implementation and, ultimately, the likelihood of meeting transition goals.
