Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) provides comprehensive medical and social services to certain frail, community-dwelling elderly individuals, most of whom are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid benefits. An interdisciplinary team of health professionals provides PACE participants with coordinated care.

For most participants, the comprehensive service package enables them to remain in the community rather than receive care in a nursing home.

  • You must be 55 years of age or older;
  • You must meet nursing facility level of care;
  • You must live in Hamilton County; and
  • You must be able to live in a community setting without jeopardizing your health or safety.

To apply or for more information on the PACE program visit: or call 423-698-0802. Services for hearing impaired: TTY 1-800-848-0298.
