The primary goal of Huron Valley PACE is to provide members in the community the care and medical treatment they need in order to help them live in their homes for as long as possible. We achieve this goal by offering a comprehensive package of services, delivered by a team of healthcare professionals. No one lives at Huron Valley PACE or stays overnight. Our mission is to support one’s choice to remain independent, living at home in the community. Huron Valley PACE is transforming care for older adults.
PACE is a program for adults age 55 and older who have ongoing healthcare needs. PACE was created as a way to provide you, your family, caregivers, and professional healthcare providers flexibility to meet your unique health care needs while helping you to continue living in the community.
An interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals will give you the coordinated care you need. These professionals are trained and experienced in working with older people. They will work together with you and your family (if appropriate) to develop the most effective plan of care for you.
PACE provides all the care and services covered by Medicare and Medicaid, as authorized by the interdisciplinary team, as well as additional medically necessary care and services not covered by Medicare and Medicaid. PACE provides coverage for prescription drugs, doctor care, medical transportation, home care, checkups, hospital visits, and even nursing home stays whenever necessary.
A PACE participant may be fully liable for the costs of medical services from an out-of-network provider, or without prior authorization (except in emergency situations). Huron Valley PACE is the sixth PACE program in the State of Michigan and there are over 100 sites across the Unites States. Further information on the PACE Program can be found at npaonline.org and http://www.pace4you.org/.
