Section Q

The Minimum Data Set (MDS) is a federally mandated quarterly assessment administered to all nursing home residents. The MDS has questions in Section Q of the tool that can connect long-term residents with opportunities to live in the most integrated setting and assist the state in meeting its non-discrimination requirements under Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Money Follows the Person Program

In 2011, DAIL was awarded a five year $17.9 million “Money Follows the Person” (MFP) grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The grant was continued effective April 1, 2016 though September 30, 2019 with an additional $8 million. The goal of the MFP grant is to work together with the Choices for Care Program to help people living in nursing facilities to overcome barriers that have prevented them from moving to their preferred community-based setting.
