The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will hold its next Open Door Forum stakeholder conference call for Long-Term Services and Supports at 2 p.m. ET Tuesday.
The agency will give general announcements and updates, including the latest on the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program. Of particular note will be the previously sent press release “HHS to Provide $110 Million to Strengthen Safety Net for Seniors and People with Disabilities” through the MFP program.
First authorized in 2005, MFP has provided states with more than $4 billion to support people who choose to transition out of institutions and back into their homes and communities.
A question-and-answer segment will conclude the program.
The conference call leaders will be Jodie Sumeracki, CMCS, and Jill Darling, of CMS’ Office of Communications.
