Medicare, Medicaid or other Payments

MOUNTAIN EMPIRE PACE WILL TELL YOU IN ADVANCE IF YOU NEED TO PAY A PREMIUM ...

PACE is financed through capitation.  The program receives a set amount each month for each participant.  These payments are made at the first of each month.  MEOC assumes full financial risk for the cost of care provided to each participant.  Most people who enroll in PACE have both Medicare and Medicaid.  If  you have BOTH Medicaid and Medicare, you can participate in PACE without paying deductibles or co-payments, but you may need to pay a set premium each month to stay eligible for Medicaid.  Mountain Empire PACE will tell you in advance if you need to pay a premium.

If you have Medicaid, but NOT Medicare, you can participate in PACE without paying deductibles or co-payments, but you may need to pay a set amount each month to stay eligible for Medicaid.  Mountain Empire PACE will tell you in advance if you need to pay a premium.

If you have Medicare ONLY, you must pay a monthly premium to participate in PACE.

If you have NEITHER Medicaid nor Medicare, you must pay our full monthly premium.
