Case Study: Ohio’s Money Follows the Person Demonstration (HOME Choice)
This case study of Ohio’s Money Follows the Person demonstration, known as HOME Choice, describes key features of the program and highlights early program experiences.
Ohio was one of 17 states to receive federal funding for the Money Follows the Person (MFP) rebalancing demonstration in January 2007. The state was awarded up to $100 million in enhanced federal matching funds in order to transition roughly 2,200 seniors and people with disabilities from institutions to home and community-based settings and to help Ohio balance its long-term services and support system.
The brief is part of a series that will examine different Money Follows the Person programs across the states. The brief was released along with several other resources on Medicaid long-term services and supports at a Feb. 7, 2011 briefing at the Foundation’s Washington, D.C., offices.
