Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a Medicare and Medicaid program that helps people meet their health care needs in the community instead of going to a nursing home or other care facility. With PACE, you have a team of health care professionals working with you and your family to make sure you get the coordinated care you need.

PACE provides all the care and services covered by Medicare and Medicaid, as well as additional care and services deemed necessary by the Interdisciplinary Team (IDTeam). PACE provides coverage for primary and specialty care, prescription drugs, medical transportation, hospital visits, dental care, medical equipment, home care, as well as physical, occupational, and speech therapy, and other services. The IDTeam works together with you and your family to develop the most effective plan of care for you.

PACE History

Divider-Yellow2.png

The PACE model of care can be traced to the early 1970s, when the Chinatown-North Beach community of San Francisco saw the pressing needs for long-term care services by families whose elders had immigrated from Italy, China and the Philippines. The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 established the PACE model as a permanently recognized provider type under both the Medicare and Medicaid programs. 

Today, there are over 138 PACE programs operating 272 PACE Centers in 31 states.
