PACE is an integrated program to help the elderly continue living in their community.
What is PACE (Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly)?
The Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is designed to help you meet your health care needs within the community instead of getting admitted to a nursing home or other healthcare facility.
PACE is a Medicare program and States can elect to include it with Medicaid as well. Most enrollees are dual eligibles. As part of the program, a team of health care professionals works with you and your family to ensure that you get the necessary care. You may be required to use a PACE-preferred doctor who makes health care decisions on your behalf.
How can I qualify for PACE?
To enroll in PACE, you should either have Medicare or Medicaid or both. To be eligible, you need to be 55 years or older, live in the service area of a PACE organization and need nursing home level of care.
