Kentucky Transitions

Description: Kentucky Transitions helps people move out of nursing facilities or institutions and into their own homes. The Department for Medicaid Services developed the program in 2008 with a Money Follows the Person demonstration grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Kentucky Transitions has helped more than 750 people leave institutional care.

Using funding from the Money Follows the Person Demonstration Grant (MFP), the Department for Medicaid Services assists eligible individuals to transition from institutional settings back into the community. This program allows for flexibility in the individual’s choice over the location and the type of services the person receives as his or her needs and preferences change. Upon transition, services will be provided through one of the appropriate existing waiver programs (ABI or HCBW).
