The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has published the comments received in response to the Request for Information (RFI) published on December 23, 2016. The RFI sought comment on potential elements to be included in a five-year PACE-like model test for individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medcaid, age 21 and older, with disabilities that impair their mobility and who are assessed as requiring a nursing home level of care. (The Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly [PACE] currently serve seniors with specific supports, but a law in 2015 has expanded the authority to serve individuals under age 55 with disabilities as well.) (See WICs article, "PACE Demonstration Legislation Signed into Law," November 23, 2015.)
