State Plan Amendments for PACE

Before CMS can enter into a PACE program agreement with a provider and state, the state must amend its Medicaid State Plan to include PACE. CMS has developed a preprint page that states can use for this process, or states can develop an alternative format. The state plan also must be amended/updated each time the state changes the maximum number of participants to be served in the program or wishes to revise the approved PACE provisions in its state plan.

The state plan amendment covers three major components:

  • clinical and financial eligibility and post-eligibility treatment of income requirements for PACE enrollees,
  • an overview of the methodology used to calculate the Medicaid capitated payments, and
  • procedures for processing Medicaid enrollments and disenrollments in the state's management information system.
