Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is PACE?

A. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services authorized the Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, known as "PACE," because it keeps many seniors safe and independent at home, instead of a nursing home in later years.

Center for Elders' Independence is licensed to provide PACE in the East Bay of San Francisco.

Q. What does this cost?

A. Most people pay nothing. There are never co-pays, deductibles or surprise bills.

  • There is no cost for people with full Medi-Cal.
  • There is a share-of-cost for people who have a Medi-Cal share of cost.
  • For people with Medicare (but not Medi-Cal), there is a monthly premium that depends on financial need - our benefits team can give you an estimate.

Q. Is this a doctor group, or insurance?

A. We are both. We have a complete medical network, and are the insurer. Everything that's medically needed is covered.

Q. Is this a permanent decision?

A. No. Your parent is never locked into a contract with us.
