My Place Louisiana
My Place Louisiana (My Place) is the state's program for the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Money Follows the Person (MFP) Rebalancing Demonstration, designed to help states try new ways of delivering Medicaid services. The demonstration program is designed to help people to move or "transition" from an institution into home- and community-based living settings, such as a home or apartment.
To be eligible for My Place a person must:
- Currently resided in a qualified institution (nursing facility, intermediate care facilities for people with developmental disabilities, or rehabilitation hospital) for 90 consecutive days;
- Qualify for an OAAS or OCDD waiver;
- Meet Medicaid financial eligibility requirements; and
- Qualify for level of care eligibility for community-based services in the My Place program.
For additional information choose the population you are interested in learning more about:
- OAAS -- Elderly or Adults with Physical Disabilities -- Elders (age 65 and older) or adults (who developed the disability at age 22 or later) with a physical disability residing in nursing facilities
- OCDD - Children or people with developmental disabilities -- Children (birth until their 19th birthday residing in a nursing facility) or people with DD of any age (residing in nursing facilities, ICFs/DD or specialty hospital)
