HOW PACE WORKS

The Interdisciplinary Care team (IDT) is what makes Fresno PACE unique. The IDT is the principal care management mechanism in PACE which directly provides and coordinates all care for our Members.

The team is composed of a primary care physician, center manager, registered nurses, physical, occupational and recreational therapists, social worker, dietitian, home care coordinator, certified aides, and a transportation representative.

It’s this team that provides direction on your health care needs 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. When a member needs healthcare or a service that supports a healthy lifestyle this group will coordinate and implement those services so that the Member can maintain their health and independence.

When you enroll with Fresno PACE, we will be your sole service provider and you agree to receive medical services exclusively from our organization, except in the case of an emergency or for urgently needed services. You will have access to all the care you need through our staff or through arrangements that Fresno PACE makes with contract providers, but you will no longer be able to obtain services from other doctors or medical providers under the traditional fee-for-service Medicare and Medi-Cal system. Enrollment in Fresno PACE results in disenrollment from any other Medicare or Medi-Cal pre-payment plan or optional benefit.

Participants may be liable for the cost of unauthorized or out-of-PACE program medical services from an out-of-network provider or without prior authorization with the exception of emergency services.
