Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

This Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule strengthens patient protections, improves care coordination, and provides administrative flexibilities and regulatory relief for Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). The final rule removes redundancies and eliminates outdated information, which will reduce administrative burden on PACE organizations, and allow clinicians and other care providers to focus more of their time on patients. This rule also finalizes several operational flexibilities for PACE organizations that will improve care and access for individuals enrolled in PACE, and it includes important patient protections.
