The Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) might be able to pay for
your long-term care needs. It is a new capitated benefit that features a comprehensive
service delivery system and integrated Medicare and Medicaid financing.
PACE combines medical, social, and long-term care services for frail people.
For most participants, the comprehensive service package permits them to continue living
at home while receiving services rather than be institutionalized. PACE is available
only in states that have chosen to offer it under Medicaid. If you are frail enough to
meet your state’s standards for nursing home care, you might be eligible. There are
other eligibility requirements to get PACE. If you enroll in a PACE program, you may
have to pay a monthly premium. Listed below are some opportunities and
requirements/limits for PACE:

You may be able to stay in your own home and get your long-term care services.
