This poster shows that, when the enrollment trajectory of Maryland’s Community First Choice participants is examined, it becomes clear that some groups (such as individuals already in a 1915(c) waiver) are able to begin receiving services sooner than others. On average, CFC recipients used 96 percent of the personal or attendant care hours allocated on their plan of care. Also, planned services contained 58 percent more services on average than proposed by the acuity-based methodology.
