Payment for Services

PACE@Home is funded by Medicare, Medicaid, and private payment to deliver necessary care. If you are eligible for Medicaid (and depending on your income), PACE services may be offered free of charge. If your income is over the threshold determined by Medicaid, you may still be eligible to participate by paying a premium or a Patient Monthly Liability.

As a PACE@Home participant, all health care services are provided or arranged by your PACE team (except for emergency services). A participant may be fully liable for the cost of medical services received from an out-of-network provider or made without prior authorization (except for emergency services).
