PACE, PACENET and PACE plus Medicare

PACE, PACENET and PACE plus Medicare are Pennsylvania's prescription assistance programs for older adults. These programs offer low-cost prescription medications to qualified residents.

PACE stands for Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly.

The NET in PACENET stands for Needs Enhancement Tier. They are similar programs but have different eligibility requirements.
