News Briefs: Habitat Health Launches PACE Program in California With Kaiser Permanente

With support from Kaiser Permanente and investment firm Town Hall Ventures, Habitat Health has established a new Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) provider. Offering comprehensive care to adults who wish to live independently in their homes and communities, Habitat Health will serve aging and low-income adults in California in partnership with Kaiser and eventually expand to other states with local care partners. Habitat Health plans to begin serving PACE-eligible individuals in Los Angeles and Sacramento in 2025 and will serve as payer for all participants’ Medicare and Medicaid services. The new PACE provider will “benefit from Kaiser Permanente’s expertise in creating efficient systems and developing innovative technology to integrate complex care, and from Town Hall Ventures’ experience building successful care delivery companies that support underserved communities,” stated a March 27 press release from all three entities. Town Hall Ventures, whose leadership includes former CMS Acting Administrator and White House adviser Andy Slavitt, was founded in 2018 and has invested in or participated in the launch of 35 health care companies, including Cityblock Health, Landmark Health, Signify Health and VillageMD.
