Lilly Hummel

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a request for information on potential adaptations of the model of care employed by the Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) for new populations, including individuals with physical disabilities. The PACE Innovation Act of 2015 (PIA) provides authority to test application of PACE-like models for additional populations, including populations under the age of 55 and those who do not qualify for a nursing home level of care, under Section 1115A of the Social Security Act. Comments must be received by 5 p.m. EST on February 10, 2017. Comments should be submitted electronically in PDF form to MMCOcapsmodel@cms.hhs.gov.
