PACE Organization

Fully-operational PACE organizations face ongoing challenges from both an operational perspective and in complying with ever-changing regulatory requirements. Key benefits of being a full-member of CalPACE include access to services that assist you in improving your operations and proactively identifying and complying with federal regulations that uniquely impact PACE programs, advocacy, and education. Members meet monthly by phone and quarterly in person to discuss advocacy, policy, and education. Members also meet as group with regulators from DHCS and CMS on a quarterly basis.
