PACE

FHCSD’s PACE program is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. PACE provides individualized care by an interdisciplinary care team of geriatric professionals focused on working with you to establish your goals for care and addressing your specific needs so you can continue to live safely at home. As we age, our health needs can become overwhelming. PACE helps you to manage those needs through coordinated medical and social services. If your goal is to stay at home while you age, PACE may be the right choice for you!

We are here to serve older adults with medical and non-medical services.

How much does it cost?

PACE is a health plan that takes the place of Medi-Cal, Medicare or both (dual eligible) depending on eligibility status. Participants with Medi-Cal only or are dual eligible, have no out-of-pocket costs. Participants with Medicare only may be responsible for a share-of-cost including Part D medications. PACE participants who seek unauthorized or out-of-PACE program services may be fully responsible for the costs associated with those services.

How do I enroll with FHCSD’s PACE program?

  • You will receive a medical evaluation during this visit in order to establish your individualized care plan.
