PACE is a Medicare/Medicaid funded program. Participants who are not Medicaid (Mass Health) eligible have the option to private pay. Our enrollment specialists can discuss with you the enrollment process and the payment options including submitting an application for Medicaid if necessary.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, (Mass Health) and private pay. All covered PACE healthcare and social support services are covered fully, without a copayment or out – of – pocket expenses.

For those eligible for Medicaid, there may be a monthly “spend down” due to financial criteria. The private payment or spend down amount is not affected by any change in the participant’s health status. Please talk to the enrollment team about your particular situation.

As an insurer, Upham’s Elder Service Plan pays for all medically necessary services covered under Medicare and Medicaid regardless of your original insurance, when approved by your health care team.

Are you ready to enroll?

We look forward to hearing from you!
