Congress pushes CMS to publish PACE final rule by Dec. 31

Bipartisan bills introduced in the Senate and House call for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to publish the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly final rule by Dec. 31. The rule could open up new opportunities for PACE enrollees to access care in senior living communities and additional settings.

Integrating assisted living, PACE generates good outcomes for residents, operators

Integrating Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly into assisted living can increase attention to residents, reduce the length of hospitalizations and increase resident satisfaction, according to Peter DeGolia, M.D., CMD, medical director of McGregor PACE in Cleveland. As a result, residents who receive PACE care tend to stay in their assisted living communities longer, he added.
