People With Medicare
I have PACE.
PACE may stand for two things for people with Medicare:
- Pennsylvania's State Pharmacy Assistance Program-Pharmaceutical Assistant Contract for the Elderly (PACE)
- For information about this program, go to State Pharmacy Assistance Programs (SPAP).
- Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. This Medicare program is a special Medical Health Plan.
This is a benefit that people with Medicare and Medicaid can use instead of nursing home care. It has complete medical, social, and long-term care services for frail people. Its goal is to provide services so that people can stay in their communities, rather than moving to a nursing home.
You will get your Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage through PACE. You will not have to join any other plans.
The material on the Medicare.gov site may make more sense if you read this information first:
Find and compare specific plans on the Medicare site. Enroll in a plan when you are ready.
Find out if you qualify for Extra Help with Costs
