Money Follows the Person Demonstration Program Act
In late January, 2019, H.R. 259, the Medicaid Extenders Act, was signed into law. The bill includes three months of funding for the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Program. As we know, three months is not enough to sustain the work of MFP, but it does provide a much needed extension while we continue our advocacy for a longer renewal.
The Empower Care Act (S548 / HR1342) was introduced to reauthorize the Money Follows the Person Demonstration Program.
