For 2014, if you were assigned to one of the PACE/PACENET program's partner plans, you should not receive a bill from the Part D plan. If you receive a bill from your partner Part D plan, you should contact the PACE/PACENET program toll-free at 1-800-225-7223.
If you are enrolled in a non-partner Part D plan, you may receive a bill for the monthly premium:
* If you are a PACE member in a non-partner Part D plan that has signed a premium payment agreement with the program, you should not receive a monthly bill because PACE will pay the premium to the plan for you, as long as the monthly premium does not exceed $35.50.
In addition, you should not sign up for deductions from your Social Security checks for payment of your Part D premiums or send payment for any coupon booklets you receive without first checking with the PACE/PACENET program.
* If you are a PACE member in a non-partner Part D plan that does NOT have a signed premium payment agreement with the program, you will have to pay the monthly premium to the plan.
* All PACENET members who are in a non-partner Part D plan should receive a monthly premium bill from their Part D plan and are responsible for paying that premium directly to the plan.
