the potential participant based on assessment information. The Intake Social Worker brings the Plan of Care and Enrollment Packet to the potential participant’s home for signing.
Enrollment with Huron Valley PACE is always voluntary.
If a person meets the eligibility requirements and elects PACE, an Enrollment Agreement (similar to a member handbook) is signed. The Enrollment Agreement contains things such as participant demographic data, description of benefits, effective date, explanation of policy regarding premiums, emergency care, etc. Enrollment continues as long as desired by the PACE participant, regardless of change in health status, until death or voluntary or involuntary disenrollment. Participants begin services on the first of the month. Costs depend on your Medicare and Medicaid eligibility.
