  • 1

    Eligibility Determination

    Once you express interest in joining PACE KC, our eligibility determination process begins. We will provide you with an introduction to our program and ask a few questions to assess if you meet basic enrollment criteria. If you do, we will arrange for an Enrollment Specialist to visit your home for an in-depth intake visit. During this visit, our specialist will explain the intricacies of PACE KC, detail the services we offer, gather financial information, obtain your permission to access your medical records, answer your questions, and conduct an assessment to determine if you meet the criteria for the level of care required. The state of Missouri utilizes a comprehensive set of criteria based on your functional status, nutritional risk, physical and mental health, and living arrangements to determine your eligibility.

    After meeting the preliminary enrollment criteria and verifying your eligibility for the program with the state of Missouri, we will schedule in-person assessments with members of the PACE KC Interdisciplinary Team. These assessments will be conducted both in your home and at the PACE KC Adult Wellness Center. While at the center, you’ll have the opportunity to tour our facilities and learn more about PACE KC from our knowledgeable associates. Once all assessments are completed, our team will work together to develop a personalized Plan of Care tailored to your unique needs and preferences.

    Enrollment Conference

    To complete the enrollment process, we will schedule an enrollment conference where you and your caregivers will meet with our team to complete all necessary paperwork and discuss important topics. These topics include your personalized PACE KC care plan, target enrollment date, monthly premium, and your rights and responsibilities as a member. Our team will answer any questions you may have to ensure you fully understand the program and the benefits available to you.
