On March 30, 2016, OOIE joined the NJ Department of Human Services in celebrating New Jersey’s success in the federal Money Follows the Person program – known as “I Choose Home N.J.” (ICHNJ) has resulted in assisting more than 1,600 Medicaid eligible individuals in moving from nursing homes and state developmental centers, into their own homes in local communities.
Between July 1, 2008 and March 16, 2016, a total of 1,675 people have transitioned from institutions to community homes through ICHNJ: 710 are people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, 542 are older adults and 423 people have physical disabilities.
Since its inception in 2008, ICHNJ has generated a total of $18.5 million in additional federal reimbursement for the cost of providing services in New Jersey. New Jersey reinvests these funds in efforts to help more state residents age in place to avoid institutionalization and to create more home and community–based opportunities.
