In May 2007, Kentucky was awarded a Money Follows the Person Rebalancing Demonstration Grant in the amount of $49.8 million from CMS to implement a Money Follows the Person (rebalancing) program in Kentucky.
The purpose of the grant is to facilitate transition to sustainable community-based services for individuals who choose to move from Medicaid-funded long-term care settings to the community.
Medicaid recipients who have been in an institutional setting or combination of hospitalization and institutionalization for at least 90 consecutive days are eligible to transition.
Those who transition must meet the criteria for services through one of three Medicaid waivers. Waivers provide transition and community-based services to individuals who:
- are elderly and/or physically disabled;
- have mental illness;
- have intellectual and/or developmental disability; or
- have an acquired brain injury.
