PACE Provides Comprehensive Care
PACE uses Medicare and Medicaid funds to cover all of your medically-necessary care and services. Medicaid completely covers the cost of the program. Medicare covers a portion of the program. Private pay option is also available to join PACE.
The Focus is on You
You have a team of health care professionals to help you make health care decisions. Your team is experienced in caring for people like you. They get to know you, what kind of living situation you are in and what your preferences are. You and your family participate as the team develops and updates your plan of care and your goals in the program.
PACE Covers Prescription Drugs
Beacon of LIFE offers Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage if you are eligible. If you join the PACE program, you’ll get your Part D-covered drugs and all other necessary medication from the PACE program. Note: If you are in a PACE program, you don’t need to join a separate Medicare drug plan. If you do, you will lose your PACE health and prescription drug benefits.
PACE Supports Family Caregivers
Beacon of LIFE supports your family members and other caregivers with caregiving training, support groups and respite care to help families keep their loved ones in the community.
PACE Provides Services in the Community
Beacon of LIFE provides care and services in the home, community and PACE center. We have contracts with many specialists and other providers in the community to make sure that you get the care you need. Many PACE participants get most of their care from staff employed by Beacon of LIFE in the PACE center. All PACE centers meet State and Federal safety requirements and include adult day programs, medical clinics, personal care, activities and occupational and physical therapy facilities.
Preventive Care is Covered and Encouraged
The focus of every PACE organization is to help you live in the community for as long as possible. To meet this goal, Beacon of LIFE focuses on preventive care. Although all people enrolled in PACE are eligible for nursing home care, only 7% live in nursing homes.
PACE Provides Medical Transportation
Beacon of LIFE provides all transportation to the PACE center for activities or medical appointments.
