What is PACE?
PACE is an option of Integrated Long Term Care that provides comprehensive medical and social services so that older individuals may remain living in the community. The Division of Medicaid and Medical Assistance (DMMA) is currently developing PACE in Delaware.
How does PACE work?
Once an individual is enrolled in PACE, a care plan will be developed by the PACE health care team. Individuals will be transported to and from the PACE facility to receive necessary services.
What services are covered by PACE?
PACE provides all services covered by Medicare and Medicaid as determined necessary by the health care team. It also covers other services necessary to keep individuals in the community if part of the care plan developed by the PACE health care team. A sampling of services provided by the PACE organization include primary and specialty doctor care, dental care, prescriptions, hospital care, meals, home and personal care services, and nursing home care if needed.
