Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)

A program for people who are eligible for Medicaid or Medicare, or both; age 55 or older; live in a PACE organization service area; are eligible for nursing home care, and are able to live safely in the community. It allows eligible persons to meet health care needs in the community instead of a nursing home or other care facility. Core services integrate acute and long-term services and supports, which include adult day care, social support, home health, hospital care, nursing home care, and case management. PACE is a capitated managed care benefit provided by a not-for-profit or public entity.
