How much does PACE cost?
PACE is a capitated program, meaning it operates at a set monthly cost, regardless of services or benefits provided. That provides an incentive for PACE to keep its participants as healthy as possible. If you have Medicaid, you will likely not have any cost for the program. If you have Medicare only, you will have to pay the portion of PACE that is the long term care benefit and Part D drugs. If you have neither Medicare nor Medicaid, you can private pay. PACE becomes both your insurer and provider; you won't need or have separate health insurance coverage, Contact your local PACE program and ask for an enrollment specialist to discuss your specific situation and learn more about what your cost for PACE would be.
