PACE offers more services with less out of pocket

A Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) offers complete, coordinated, individualized care for older adults who want to live at home instead of a nursing home. They offer more services and more care for less than what one would spend on a nursing home.*

Look at the difference between what is included in PACE vs. what is included with a nursing home. The average monthly cost for both is also listed. Additionally, most participants have no monthly premiums, and there are no additional out-of-pocket costs once enrolled. PACE is open to individuals of all income levels.

A model of care for the whole person

With a team-based approach that includes the participant and their caregivers, PACE provides the medical care, in-home assistance, and health insurance they may need—along with the feeling of independence they want.

It's true. 

PACE includes care that is not covered by a nursing home. These are just a few examples:
