19. Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)

In March of 2020, the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services implemented administrative regulations to establish coverage and reimbursement for Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). In addition to meeting federal guidelines, approved Kentucky PACE providers will provide comprehensive, capitated health services that enhance the lives of frail, older adults, and enable those adults to live in the community as long as the services are medically and socially feasible.  Coverage and reimbursement for PACE will include primary care, social services, restorative therapies, including physical and occupational therapy, personal care and supportive services, nutritional counseling, recreational therapy and meals.

Staff from the Department for Medicaid Services will provide program attendees with available information to participate in this new comprehensive provider category. In addition, an approved LeadingAge Kentucky member will share insights and guidance regarding establishing an approved PACE program in Kentucky.
