Alabama Medicaid Money Follows the Person

Alabama

Alabama received a Medicaid Money Follows the Person grant in October 2012. Alabama received $3.4 million in the first year and up to $28 million over the four-year project to support the successful transition of 625 individuals from an institutional setting to community living. The majority of the funds provide Home and Community-Based Services for Medicaid-eligible individuals who are elderly or have disabilities and who choose to transition from nursing facilities or a state-operated psychiatric hospital Grant funds will cover the upfront costs associated with transitioning each individual as well as the administrative costs of operating the program and will be paid during the first year of each person’s transition.
