MFP Process: Quality Assurances
Money Follows the Person is a Federal Demonstration project administered by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS has given States the authority to administer Money Follows the Person in their State as best fits into the existing state systems as described in each State's federally approved operational protocol.
Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) is the agency that oversees MFP in Illinois. HFS has contracted with the University of Illinois College of Nursing to provide quality management, outcomes reporting and training of MFP transition coordinators. There are a number of quality assurances that must be met and reported to CMS. Those that pertain to MFP transition coordinators are monitored by UIC-College of Nursing. These include:
Required MFP pre-transition documentationfor each MFP participant who transitions to the community. For example, all MFP participants are required to have a 24-Hour Backup Plan and a comprehensive Risk Assessment and Mitigation Plan in place prior to transition that is documented and maintained by the transition coordinator throughout the 365-day follow-up period. See this presentation about the Risks, Strategies and Mitigation Plan.
Case review/staffing must occur prior to transition. This teleconference includes the MFP transition coordinator and supervisor (if wishes), UIC staff and Dept/Div representatives. During the staffing, the group discusses the MFP participant and the mitigation plan that will be put in place. Recommendations may be made. Final approval for transitions are made by Dept/Div leads.
