Hi to everyone! I'm the DSS Connecticut MFP Demonstration. And, as we speak I'm screening four MFP cases this afternoon while listening to your Webinar. I'll keep listening as I work. Bye.

Hello Carol
Anne Womer
Hi John, given the high number of attendees the audio for attendees is muted. You can communicate with panelists through our chat function and pose questions for the Q&A here
Anne Womer
Hi Debbie,Carol spoke on this a bit but these are the 6 autonomous areas: (1) Can you go to bed when you want?, (2) Can you be by yourself when you want to?, (3) When you are at home, can you eat when you want to?, (4) Can you choose the foods that you eat?, (5) Can you talk on the telephone without someone listening in?, and (6) Can you watch TV when you want to?. The quality of sleep question was Can you get the sleep you need without noises or other disturbances where you live?

Understand that original applicants overspeculated extremely as to how many transitions they expected to perform. Once they began building their programs they found all of the internal process gaps they were unaware of. Once these original applicants got up and running later grantees were able to ramp up much more quickly based upon the learnings of the original grantees.

For the IDD population, is the decline in institutional use due more to closed admission policies than choice for HCBS?
John Sorensen
My belief is that success is dependant upon the state's level of commitment

Statistics indicate that at least 75% of Medicaid funding for the IDD population is already utilized in community programs/settings. When will "rebalancing" for this population be considered complete?

Me (the guy) from CT DSS Central Office MFP again! While listening I just finished screening two cases, my fellow workers as we speak (it's seven of us) are flipping Medicaid coverage at their desks too. MFP in CT is so busy we are now ranking the highest in terms of non - I/DD transitions per State's population in Kaye's report page 4. Which was discussed in our AM meeting today. The feedback from the consumers is amazing, too. MFP is a success in CT, as in the four cases I'm screening today average monthly NH costs of 7K each to the State. Bye, I'm working as I listen.
