Paying for PACE

Who Pays for Services?

Seniors who are eligible for Medicare and Medicaid (Medi-Cal in California) pay nothing for care through PACE at the Brandman Centers for Senior Care (BCSC). Those who are eligible for Medicare-only pay a monthly fee equal to the Medi-Cal payment. And those who are eligible for Medi-Cal with a "share-of-cost" pay a monthly premium to BCSC. There is no deductible or copayment for any drug, service, or care approved by your health care team.

The following table shows how a participant's Medicare and Medi-Cal eligibility affects payment responsibility:

Medicare & Medi-Cal Eligibility Payment Responsibility
Qualified for both and with no share-of-cost for Medi-Cal No payment required to BCSC
Qualified for both but with a share-of-cost for Medi-Cal Payment of a monthly premium to BCSC equal to share-of-cost set by Medi-Cal rules
Qualified only for Medicare Payment of a monthly premium to BCSC equal to the amount Medi-Cal pays for an eligible participant, including a premium for Medicare Part D medications
Not qualified for either Medicare or Medi-Cal Payment of a monthly premium to BCSC equal to the amount Medicare and Medi-Cal pay for an eligible participant

For more information on specific payment amounts, call (818) 774-8444.

Seniors enrolled in PACE at BCSC must get all care, including primary care and specialty care (other than emergency care) from PACE, and may have to pay the cost of unauthorized or out-of-program services.
