The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly provides comprehensive medical and social services to older adults. The PACE program is jointly administered through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Maryland Department of Health.
PACE is designed to provide and coordinate all needed preventive, primary, acute and long-term care services so that older individuals can continue living in the community. PACE program services are offered through Hopkins ElderPlus, located on the campus of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Services that may be provided include: • Adult day care
• Case management
• Home health care
• Medical equipment
• Nursing facility services
• Nutritional counseling
• Personal and supportive services
• Prescription medications
• Physician services
• Restorative therapies
• Recreational therapy
• Social services
• All other standard Medicaid services and/or Medicare services (if eligible)
Age 55 and older. Participants must have the potential to live safely in the community with Hopkins ElderPlus assistance.
If you are eligible for Medicare and/or Medicaid, PACE takes the place of the standard Medicare and/or Medicaid Programs.
Enrollment in the PACE program results in dis-enrollment from any other Medicare or Medicaid plan.
Eligibility for Medicaid depends on an individual’s income and assets. Individuals are encouraged to apply so that financial eligibility may be determined. For individuals who do not meet the Medicaid financial eligibility requirements, there is the option to pay privately.
Individuals must need the level of care required to qualify for nursing facility services.
Participants must receive all of their health care through the PACE program, except for emergency services.
