About Kansas PACE
PACE is a Medicare program and Medicaid state option that provides community based care and services to people age 55 or older who otherwise would need a nursing home level of care.
PACE was created as a way to provide consumers, their families, caregivers and professional health care providers flexibility to meet health care needs and to help consumers to continue living in the community. It covers all medical and social services for older adults who qualify for nursing home care.
