Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program
The Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care program is a Medicaid home and community-based nursing home diversion plan for seniors aged 65 and older. It funds community-based services allowing frail seniors to remain in the least-intrusive setting possible, which may be an assisted living facility.

SMMC LTC services are assigned based on the medical needs of each participant and may include:
Seniors accepted into the SMMC LTC program must cover the room-and-board portion of their assisted living costs.
For more information on Medicaid and the SMMC LTC, contact the Area Agency on Aging for Palm Beach/Treasure Coast at (866) 684-5885.
Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly is a nursing home diversion program that allows frail seniors to age in place in their community while living at home, with family or in an assisted living facility. Using a collaborative managed care model, PACE provides seniors with client-centered services designed to optimize health, wellness and independence.
Each PACE site has an interdisciplinary team consisting of primary care physicians, therapists, nurses, activation specialists, social workers and home care workers. PACE participants receive all of their Medicaid-funded services through PACE-affiliated providers, and many health care services are based at the local PACE center.
PACE services include primary and specialty care, adult day care, transportation to the PACE center, hospitalization and end of life care. The program also includes prescription medication and medical equipment coverage, in-home assistance with activities of daily living, home-delivered and communal meals, and medication management.
To be eligible for PACE enrollment, seniors aged 55 and older must:
Once a senior enrolls in PACE, they receive all their medical care through the program. Seniors are free to leave PACE at any time.
