What is the PACE program?
PACE is the abbreviation for Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. It is a program that combines both inpatient and outpatient medical and long-term care services. To be eligible, you must be at least 55 years old, live in the service area of the PACE program, and be certified as eligible for nursing home care by the appropriate state agency. PACE sites get payments directly from Medicare and Medicaid for services that all eligible enrollees get. PACE sites are only in certain communities. To find a PACE site, call your local CPA or your state, county, or local medical assistance office. Do not call a Federal office. Pace locations are also listed under the nursing home section of www.medicare.gov.
