The criteria vary depending on the qualifying institution in which the person is currently residing. The applicant must be a resident of a qualifying institution for at least 90 consecutive days. In addition to the placement requirements, a person wishing to participate in Indiana’s MFP program must also meet all of the following conditions:
- They must have needs that can be met safely through services available in the community.
- They must be an Indiana Medicaid-eligible recipient for at least one day prior to discharge from the institution.
- They must meet the minimum requirements for a funding source that is currently partnering with Indiana’s MFP program (e.g., Aged and Disabled Medicaid waiver, Traumatic Brain Injury Medicaid waiver).
