The Montana Medicaid Program “Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services Report to the 2017 Legislature”

Montana

~~“Money Follows the Person (MFP) - Montana was awarded a MFP demonstration grant from CMS to augment existing Montana’s community-based long term services and supports and to increase HCBS. The grant provides a temporary increase in the federal share of the Medicaid matching rate to pay for services to people who are already receiving Medicaid funded care in an institutional setting and choose to move into certain types of community settings…..

All waiver and demonstration services receive an enhanced FMAP rate for Medicaid benefits for a period of 365 days of service. At day 366, a participant is served under a HCBS waiver at regular FMAP. This grant was extended in the amount of $9,306,595. Montana will transition individuals to HCBS waiver programs with MFP funds through December 31, 2017. MFP funding will continue through the first quarter of calendar year 2019.”
