Evaluation of the Frail Elder Program (FEP)

Contractor: Florida International University (FIU)

Agency Contract Number: MO028

This two-year study describes the performance of the Frail Elder Program (FEP) in comparison with the Aged and Disabled Adult Medicaid Waiver Program (ADW) operating in the same region of the state.

The main objectives of the evaluation were to: 1) assess the value of expanding the FEP outside of Miami-Dade County and to other managed care plans; 2) assess the adequacy of the Medicaid capitation rates the FEP receives; 3) determine if the FEP prevents or delays nursing home admissions; and 4) determine if the FEP saves money for the State of Florida.
