TIME keeps up with PACE

Time Article Highlights PACE and NPA

PACE and NPA were featured in a June 15 TIME magazine article titled “COVID-19 Exposed the Faults in America’s Elder Care System. This Is Our Best Shot to Fix Them.” The article, which discussed the benefits of expanding PACE, quoted Shawn Bloom, president and CEO of NPA.

“The nature of payment provides significant flexibility, as well as strong incentives for PACE organizations to proactively monitor and get out in front and address existing and emerging health needs,” Bloom said.

“During the pandemic, this meant PACE programs shifted some services from their adult day centers to patients’ homes, added telehealth check-ins, and made other changes that providers say kept patients safe,” the article stated. “While nursing homes nationally had a COVID-19 case rate of close to 60 percent, the rate among PACE participants was 19 percent through the end of March. There are regulatory obstacles to expanding PACE, but U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), chair of the Senate Committee on Aging, has introduced legislation to address some of these, and [NPA] has been lobbying to change them as well.”
