Program for the All-inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE)

What is PACE?

The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a capitated benefit for individuals 55 years and older, who require the level of medical care provided in a nursing home but choose to remain in the community. Using an interdisciplinary team approach, the PACE model allows eligible individuals to remain independent and in their homes for as long as possible. PACE is a long-standing model that is nationally recognized and supported.

PACE in Minnesota

The state of Minnesota does not currently have any operational PACE organizations, nor is the state currently working to develop a PACE site or planning on issuing a request for proposals to develop PACE in Minnesota. For more information, go to History of PACE in Minnesota.

Minnesota does have a product similar to PACE and that program is called the Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO). Minnesota also has several health care reform initiatives in development. Follow the links below for more information about each of these initiatives.
