— LIFE Pittsburgh provides all-inclusive medical care, adult day and home care at no cost to qualified older adults who wish to remain independent in their own homes. LIFE is a provider-sponsored health plan approved by both Medicare and Medicaid. This means your LIFE doctor and other care providers are also the people who work with you to make decisions about your care. LIFE programs known nationally as Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) provide medical services with the goal of having older, frailer adults remain safe and independent in their homes. LIFE’s coordinated plan of care includes all medical, social, and daily living support. Primary care and community services are provided through the Day Health Centers and through an in-home program according to an individual’s needs. Services include comprehensive medical care, including outpatient and inpatient services, emergency care, podiatry, dentistry, hearing and eye care, diagnostic tests, lab tests and procedures, full prescription coverage, physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapy, nutritional support, transportation to and from the day health centers and to medical appointments, medical supplies and durable medical equipment. LIFE serves residents of Allegheny County who are 55 years old or older, in need of nursing facility care as defined by the state, and able to live safely in the community with the support of LIFE services. There are no fees whatsoever for financially eligible participants.
