The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be holding a stakeholder meeting on Monday, August 15, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. CT. The topic will be regarding the newly released proposed rule updating the Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). CMS has summarized the proposed rule as follows.
This proposed rule would revise and update the requirements for the Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) under the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The proposed rule addresses application and waiver procedures, sanctions, enforcement actions and termination, administrative requirements, PACE services, participant rights, quality assessment and performance improvement, participant enrollment and disenrollment, payment, federal and state monitoring, data collection, record maintenance, and reporting. The proposed changes would provide greater operational flexibility, remove redundancies and outdated information, and codify existing practice.
