The MFP Progran is aimed at implementing a system of appropriate, person-centered, needs-based services for individuals seeking to transition from nursing homes to qualified community based settings. Advantage Health Solutions, Inc is a health plan contracted with the State of Indiana, FSSA Division of Aging, to provide MFP transitional services. To qualify for MFP, an individual must be in the nursing home for 90 days and be eligible for Medicaid for at least one day prior to discharge. Skilled therapy days under Medicare do not count towards the 90 days. Contact SWIRCA & More ADRC if you are interested in making a referral for this program.
