Six Step Enrollment Process

Contact HopeWest PACE

When you call our center (translation services available), we will explain our program services, program eligibility requirements and any costs of HopeWest PACE. We can help you see if HopeWest PACE would be a good fit for you or a loved one. We will schedule an in-home visit with our enrollment specialist. If you do not currently receive Medicaid benefits, you may be eligible and we can help you apply.

Home Visit

Our Enrollment Specialist will meet with you and a loved one in your home to discuss your needs and HopeWest PACE. We will discuss PACE financial coverage and begin the paperwork for our program. We will need documents signed such as a release of your medical records from your current care provider. Our Enrollment Specialist will schedule a second visit called an in-home assessment with a few members of our healthcare team. Paperwork will also be submitted to the county and they will contact you about a functional assessment. (They assess whether you meet the Skilled Nursing Level of Care.)

In-Home Assessment

Our healthcare team members will come and visit you in your home. They will ask you more questions about your healthcare needs, medical history, and your living situation. This will help us determine what type of care plan you will need. They will also ask you questions about your medications and how you are feeling physically. During this visit, they will schedule your HopeWest PACE Center visit.

HopeWest PACE Center Visit

We would like you to come and visit our PACE Center. You will have lunch, get a tour, and visit with additional members of our healthcare team. Each team member will conduct an assessment and will put together a personalized plan of care for you.

Meet at Your Home

Once all of the assessments, paperwork and financial applications have been completed, the Enrollment Specialist will meet with you in your home. The PACE team will collaborate with you, your caretaker, or both of you to develop a personalized plan of care. Once completed, we will present to you and your loved ones your personalized plan of care as a PACE participant. If you agree, you will sign your Enrollment Agreement.

Welcome to HopeWest PACE!
