What is PACE?

Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

What is PACE?

PACE is a comprehensive health care program created over 30 years ago. PACE provides an integrated approach with medical and supportive services designed to help individuals meet their health care needs in the community.

With PACE, a team of health care professionals works with each individual to make sure needed services are coordinated. PACE programs get to know their participants and design services to meet each person’s unique needs.

Learn more about the PACE program by visiting the National PACE Association.

How does PACE work?

PACE covers Medicare and Medicaid-covered care and services, and other services that the PACE team of health care professionals decide are necessary to improve and maintain your health. This includes medication, as well as any other assessed need: physical, emotional and social care, like doctor or health care provider visits, transportation, home care, hospital visits, and even nursing home stays when assessed as a need. Individuals can disenroll from a PACE program at any time by notifying the PACE team.
