Long-Term Services and Support

Mathematica is working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to evaluate a major initiative―Money Follows the Person (MFP)―aimed at helping state Medicaid programs reduce their reliance on institutional care for people needing long-term care, and expand options for receiving care in the community. Also for CMS, we are identifying ways to improve the identification of Medicaid home- and community-based services in Medicaid Analytic eXtract (MAX) data files so that both states and the federal government can get a better understanding of the nature, scope, and cost of these services. MAX files can also be used for detailed studies of nursing facility residents and their care.
