The Money Follows the Person (MFP) demonstration is the most ambitious program to date aimed at helping Medicaid enrollees transition from long-term care institutions to the community. This report, the third in a series presenting findings from Mathematica's evaluation of the MFP program, describes states' early implementation experiences and state transition activity as of December 2008. It also discusses the challenges that states have encountered in trying to launch the program, and implications for making fundamental changes in the long-term care system.
