Oklahoma Living Choice/Money Follows the Person

Oklahoma

“The Living Choice Project is Oklahoma’s brand name for the Money Follows the Person grant, and is administered by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA). Oklahoma’s Living Choice Project is designed to transform the current long-term care system by promoting community based services instead of institutional services.

The Living Choice project serves three populations, the physically disabled (19-64), older persons (65 and older), and intellectually disabled. Individuals in any of these three populations are eligible for transition if they have resided in a qualified institution (i.e. nursing facility, intermediate care facility for persons with intellectual disabilities) for at least ninety days prior to their proposed transition date, and have had one day of their institutional stay paid by Medicaid.”
