~~“On  January  25,  2019,  the  Medicaid  Extenders  Act  of  2019,  a  bill  that  includes short-term  funding  for  the  Money  Follows  the  Person  program,  became  law. Participants can now transition through MFP through CY  2019, which was extended from December 31, 2018.  On February 28, 2019, Congress introduced two reauthorization bills, H.R.1342 and S.548, through the Empower Care Act to extend  the  MFP  program  for  five  additional  years. They  are  still  pending Congressional action.”
