Important information about PACE:
Beacon of LIFE accepts Medicaid, Medicare or private payment. If you are eligible and enroll in PACE and are Medicaid or Medicare eligible, you pay no fees for all authorized health care services. Participants may be fully liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of-PACE program services.
An Enrollment Specialist will meet with you, your family member or caregiver, in your home to tell you about the PACE program. The Enrollment Specialist will discuss eligibility requirements for PACE and schedule a visit for you at the Beacon of LIFE center. You will have an opportunity to meet with the PACE Interdisciplinary team. If you are considering enrollment, you will receive a medical evaluation and be assessed by the PACE Interdisciplinary team so that a plan can be developed to provide the care you need, which will include input from you. The Enrollment Specialist will review the plan of care and the enrollment paperwork with you and anyone you designate to represent you. Enrollment is voluntary and you may disenroll at any time.
Paying for PACE
If you qualify for Medicare, all Medicare-covered services are paid for by PACE. If you also qualify for your State’s Medicaid program, you pay nothing for the long-term care portion of the PACE benefit. If you don’t qualify for Medicaid, you will be charged a monthly premium to cover the long-term care portion the PACE benefit. PACE also covers Medicare Part D drugs if you are eligible. In PACE, there is never a deductible or copayment for any drug, service or care approved by the PACE team.
