The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) model is centered on the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible.
PACE serves individuals who are age 55 or older, certified by the state to need nursing home care, able to live safely in the community at the time of enrollment, and live in a PACE service area.
If you are eligible for Medicaid and Medicare, or Medicaid only, there may be no fee to join the program. If you are eligible for Medicare only, there is a set monthly fee involved. Individuals with commercial insurance or no insurance are encouraged to contact PACE directly to learn more about payment options.
