PACE Program Details

You may be asking "what is the PACE program and how can it help me?" 

This page explains how the PACE program works. If you have other questions, please ask!


Insurance, Medical Care and Medications - all in one

With CHA PACE, you get all your health care and support services from one coordinated team. Services are tailored to your needs.

Our services are covered by Medicare and MassHealth. That means you get everything that is covered by Medicare and Medicaid as well as any additional services authorized by your care team. These may include medical care, meals, social activities, physical therapy, home care and more.

Even your Part D-covered drugs and other necessary medications are provided to you at no extra cost. You don’t need to join a separate Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.

Free for Many

If your monthly income is below $2,200, the program is free. If your monthly income is higher, you may have a monthly deductible.

Call 617-575-5850 (hearing impaired, please call 7-1-1) and ask to speak with an enrollment specialist for more details.
