~~“The Money Follows the Person (MFP) Rebalancing Demonstration is a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) grant designed  to help states try new ways of delivering Medicaid services. In Louisiana the MFP Demonstration is called My Place Louisiana which helps people move from qualified institutions into home and community-based living settings and then follows those individuals for the first year of waiver services to help ensure a successful transition. My Place Louisiana Transition Coordinators work with support coordinator and provider agencies to provide assistance to ensure the health, safety and successful transition of people participating in waivers.
The Louisiana Medicaid Office is working with the Office for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities (OCDD) and the Office for Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) to implement My Place Louisiana, which is a 13-year (2008-2020) program focusing on Medicaid funding and following participants in transitioning from qualified institutions to home and community-based living settings.”
