Governor Roy Cooper has declared September as PACE Month in North Carolina. His timely recognition comes as the state transforms the majority of its Medicaid system from fee-for-service to managed care. One of the original managed care programs in the state, he notes that "PACE is a model for managed care, having demonstrated improved health outcomes and greater satisfaction for its participants."
The National PACE Association has proclaimed September as National PACE Month, an opportunity to celebrate the work of Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®). This year’s theme of “Many Hands, Many Minds, One GOAL” highlights the central role of the PACE interdisciplinary team in improving the lives of participants and their family caregivers.
