Is An Alternative Care Site in Your PACE Program’s Future Growth Plan? Imagine the Possibilities!

In an increasingly lean and competitive operating environment, PACE programs are seeking to grow as rapidly and costeffectively as possible. Incorporating alternative care settings as part of a PACE growth and expansion strategy can dramatically increase the options for creative and cost-effective program growth. Join us for a review of alternative care settings in the current regulatory environment and then let’s imagine what the PACE program of the future might look like if we are afforded expanded flexibility with the passage of the PACE Innovation Act.

Rising to the Challenge: What is the Growth Potential of PACE in Your Market and Across the Nation?

Many states are developing integrated Medicare and Medicaid programs to serve dual eligible populations that are inclusive of PACE. For the first time, PACE programs across the country may face significant competition by alternative integrated programs. Given the intensity of this development, it is critically important for PACE programs to understand the size of the PACE eligible population relative to the total dual eligible population and plan their growth in a strategic manner.
