New Jersey Statutes, Title: 26, HEALTH AND VITAL STATISTICS

    Chapter 2H: Declaration of public policy

      Section: 26:2H-88: Definitions relative to PACE programs.

1. As used in this act:
"Medicaid" means the program established pursuant to P.L.1968, c.413 (C.30:4D-1 et seq.).
"Medicare" means the program established pursuant to Pub.L.89-97 (42 U.S.C. s.1395 et seq.).
"PACE" means the "Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly," operated by a public, private, nonprofit or proprietary entity, as permitted by federal law. The program is a comprehensive health and social services delivery system that integrates acute and long-term care services. PACE is a capitated program which provides services to disabled and frail elderly persons who are certified by the State as nursing home eligible to maximize their autonomy and continued independence.
"Pre-PACE" means a PACE program in its initial start-up phase and includes the same comprehensive scope of services as a PACE program. A Pre-PACE program may contract with the State to provide services to Medicaid-eligible persons on a capitated basis for a limited scope of the PACE service package, with the remaining services reimbursed directly to the service providers by the Medicaid and Medicare programs.
