 AN ACT to amend the public health law, in  relation  to  establishing  a
   state-level  program  of  all-inclusive care for the elderly; to amend
   the social services law, in relation to making  technical  corrections
   to  such  law; and repealing certain provisions of the social services

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
 the  Program  of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly ("PACE") is a feder-
 ally recognized model of comprehensive care for persons 55 years of  age
 or  older, qualifying for nursing home levels of care who wish to remain
 in their community (see, Sections 1894 and 1934 to Title  XVIII  of  the
 Social  Security  Act; 42 CFR 460). The PACE program includes both Medi-
 caid and Medicare covered benefits.   Federal preemption of  state  laws
 with  respect  to  PACE  has  inhibited  the ability of state agencies -
 particularly the New York State Department of Health ("DOH") - to  regu-
 late PACE plans similarly to other public and commercial health plans.
   The  legislature  further  finds  that: Research has demonstrated that
 PACE has delivered marked improvements for  enrollees  in  the  programs
 nationwide  including,  but  not limited to reduced hospitalizations and
 readmissions; reduced reliance on emergency medical  services;  improved
 quality  of  life;  and  higher  satisfaction with the totality of their
 care. In conjunction with these improvements, the implementation of PACE
 in New York has realized significant savings  to  the  state's  Medicaid
 program  compared  to costs that would have been incurred under fee-for-
 service. As neither a fee-for-service model nor a managed long-term care
 plan, PACE represents a unique approach to care and coverage  for  those
 with  long-term care needs. PACE organizations are currently required to
 be licensed and are regulated under multiple  provisions  of  state  and
