Who can join PACE?

PACE is a program of Medicare and Medicaid (MassHealth)

The Harbor Health Elder Service Plan (PACE) provides healthcare and social support for older adults, over age 55, living with chronic medical concerns and requiring assistance to remain safely at home in the community.

Massachusetts Medicaid – called MassHealth – operates the Frail Elder Waiver specifically to help residents who require nursing home level care to receive health care and ongoing support services in their homes or community living residences instead of in a nursing home. Harbor Health Elder Service Plan Participants qualify for the Frail Elder Waiver, in other words, they qualify for “Nursing Facility Care”, as determined by the State of Massachusetts.

Enrollment is voluntary, which also allows a participant to withdraw from the program at their own discretion. For more information on the enrollment process, click here.
