The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) is proposing a number of changes to the regulations that control the Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. PACE, as it is known, allows seniors, most of whom are eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, to live and receive care at home instead of in a skilled nursing facility.
More than 34,000 older adults are currently enrolled in about 100 PACE organizations in 31 states including Florida. Enrollment in PACE has increased by more than 60 percent since 2011, according to CMS.
