Yes. There are two other ways someone can become ineligible for MFP during the MFP process (before moving into the community).
1. Client Obligation, based on the individual’s income, is the amount the individual is expected to contribute toward the cost of Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). If the client obligation is more than the HCBS cost of services then they would not be eligible for the MFP program.
2. Functional Assessment is completed approximately 2 weeks before the client moves into the community. This assessment confirms the client is eligible for one of the four Home and Community Based Programs (HCBS) that Money Follows the Person is allowed to provide funds for; Frail Elderly (FE), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Intellectual/Development Disability (I/DD), Physical Disability (PD).
Note: The CMS approved Physical Disability Program states: “PD Program policy manual and PD Application states; Physical Disability is for beneficiaries who are a minimum of 16 to a maximum of 64 years of age, who are determined eligible for Medicaid , who meet functional criteria for nursing facility placement to accomplish the normal rhythms of the day, and who are determined disabled by Social Security standards (excluding beneficiaries with a diagnosis of Severe and Persistently Mentally Ill [SPMI], Severely Emotionally Disturbed [SED], or Developmentally Disabled [DD]).”
