Community First Choice Implementation in Maryland, 2014-2016

September 01, 2017

Community First Choice (CFC) is an optional Medicaid state plan program authorized by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that enables states to provide home- and community-based services (HCBS) to Medicaid-eligible individuals through their state plan and receive a 6 percent increase in their federal match.
