Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC)
Who We Are
Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens offers the AllCare for Seniors. Medicaid Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a program for individuals age 55 and older, who are eligible for Medicare and Medicaid benefits, and who meet nursing facility requirements. The program provides supports and services that allow PACE members to remain in familiar surroundings--their homes and communities while receiving needed nursing services.
ALLCARE is a long-term care solution for individuals who need help taking care of themselves at home. PACE programs provide health care and social services for older adults who need nursing home services but want to continue living in their homes and communities. Home and health care services are coordinated and supervised.
ALLCARE services can include: doctor visits, hospital stay and emergency services, prescriptions, physical therapy, adult day care, in-home support and personal care, meals, transportation and social activities and recreation.
PACE is a voluntary health plan. Participants enrolled in a PACE program receive all their health care from the program’s network of providers. Participants are free to leave PACE at any time and go back to their former Medicare and/or Medicaid programs.
