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. The services offered through CFC enable participants to live and actively participate in their communities. This data brief examines CFC program participation, utilization, and expenditures in Maryland thus far.
